SO HOW'D IT GO?

I've made these with fava beans and with black beans on a separate occasion.  I liked them both but I think I preferred the Fava beans.  I used fresh spinach and added some extra diced anaheim chilis in it too and it was really delicious.  My meat loving family enjoyed them as well.

These are so good. I made my own modifications-

I used canellini beans and fresh spinach and added in some green sauce. I've never used bell peppers in it, just because I didn't have any. They have gotten great reviews from omnivores and are one of my favorite things to make.

Very delicious! I'm impressed! I'm vegetarian so I used regular cheese and sour cream. Also I used fresh spinach and added fresh diced avocado.  Will be making this again for sure! So easy and satisfying !

So I am literally eating this dish as I'm typing this. This is my first vegan meal and I absolutely love it! I used black beans instead and opted out of the vegan cheese. I've been cutting dairy out of my diet for several months now and cheese, vegan or not, does not interest me. For a dip, I used vegan sour cream, half a mashed avocado, and seasoning to taste. It all turned out great! and I got 4 meals out of it!!My Quesadillas

If I'm using dried fava beans, do I have to peel them? They have a brownish skin color.

This was delicious, and as everyone suggested, I opted for black beans instead of fava beans. I'm a big fan of spinach so I added a bit more spinach than suggested and it still turned out great. I didn't use nearly as much vegan cheese as suggested. I used about a 3/4 to 1 cup of vegan cheese and it was plenty cheesy. I would make it again.

This recipe was delicious!  I started my vegan adventure 7 weeks ago and am down 13 pounds and feel great.  I'll be coming back to this site again for more great ideas.
