I had this dish at a local Latin Restaurant here in town and loved it, so as I am apt to do I went home and started trying out the recipe at home and came up with this little doozy. I love the Manchego cheese, which is salty with the nutty flavor of the Beans. The mix of herbs just adds another layer of flavor. Recently a blog that I follow the Pyjama Gardner posted about her growing Magic Beans and how she is not a fan of eating the Fava Beans, it made me think of this recipe and how delicious it is, even someone who is not a fan of these little nutty Beans would learn to love them in this recipe!
2 cups Fava Beans (thawed)
1/2 cup cubed Manchego Cheese
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
Zest of One Lemon
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon chopped Rosemary
1/2 teaspoon chopped Oregano
1/2 teaspoon chopped Thyme
Salt & Pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and let sit at room temperature for about an hour or longer.

During the day you can find me in my garden or kitchen, and most likely my camera won’t be far. When I am not at home I like to head to the gym, or stretch out at hot yoga. I didn’t really start cooking and baking until I got married and I needed to feed my family!
