African-Inspired Spicy Squash and Fava Beans on Raw Collard “Tortillas”

Okay, everyone, please take up your positions. The Squash-a-thon is about to begin!

On the one hand, fall is the season for marathons and runs. On the other hand, it’s also the season for squashes–anything from pumpkin (the first place frontrunner right now) to kabocha (my own pick for a winner) […]
