Puree of Fava Beans

1/2 lb Dried fava beans, soaked
3 Garlic cloves
1 ts Cumin seeds
Olive oil
1/4 ts Za'atar -=OR=- use thyme, - oregano or marjoram

Drain & skin the soaked fava beans. Cover with fresh water & cook gently with the garlic & cumin seeds until the beans are tender. Drain. Puree the beans. Stir in enough olive oil & a littel water, to give the puree a soupy consistency. Season with salt & beat well. Heat just before serving with a little more olive oil & a sprinkling of the za'atar. Serve with Arab bread & a bowl of mixed spices (ground cumin, cayenne & salt).
