Bean Sauce

Fava bean sauce ( Can be made with white/ northern beans, black, pinto or any other you enjoy) I find it great for Fava since the flavor is rich.

1 lb fava beans
1 head of garlic
1 yellow onion
1 green pepper
2 cups of cheddar cheese
1 tbsp salt
1tbsp black pepper
1tbsp cayenne pepper
1tbsp cumin
2 tsp coriander seed seasoning
1/2 cup cilantro
Soak beans 24 hours, drain and rinse once. Add twice as much water as beans and cook on medium with chopped onions, garlic and pepper. Once beans are tender add salt and other seasonings, cook for five minutes. add chopped cilantro, remove from heat and let rest for an hour. You should have an inch of water over the beans. If you have more than that drain it until you do. Pour the beans into a blender with cheese and blend until smooth.
You can use this to make macaroni and cheese, dip, over meat or with a tortilla for a casadia. Also great for enchiladas. I use the same method with white beans for kids as the beans have no flavor. The kids think they are getting cheese sauce haha. My picky nephew loves it! Of course for kids leave out the cilantro. “But it has green stuff in it!”
I always soak beans for 24 hours. It cuts down on the cooking time.
