   bring to a simmer.  Add the 2 ts salt, cover & cook for
 20 to 25
   minutes or until the beans are very soft.  Add more water
 if
   necessary. Drain & place in a processor with the 2 tb
 olive oil.
   Clean the broccoli rabe by peeling off any thick skin
 covering the
   larger stems & cut into 2 pieces. Rinse the greens well.
  Bring the
   water to a boil, add the greens & 1 tb salt, cover & cook
 until the
   greens are soft but not mushy, 5 minutes. Drain. Warm the
 3 tb olive
   oil in a skillet & slowly saute the garlic just enough
 until it is
   golden brown & soft.  Do not let it brown.  Add the
 greens & swilr
   them around in well flavoured oil.  Serve on a platter,
 spooning the
   garlic infused greens over the favas.
