Fava Bean Hummus

 2      cups dried fava beans
 2      cloves of garlic, peeled
 3      tablespoons sesame tahini paste
 2      tablespoons fresh lemon juice (juice from 1/2 large lemon)
 1/2    teaspoon ground cumin
 1/2    teaspoon ground roasted coriander seed
 1/2    teaspoon salt
 1/4    cup extra virgin olive oil

Place the fava beans in a small saucepan and cover with about 4 cups of cold water. Add the shallot, garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer for about 40 minutes or until the beans are falling apart. Cool to room temperature. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Transfer the beans and garlic to a food processor. Add the lemon juice, cumin, cayenne, and pepper to taste, and purée until very smooth. With the machine running, add the olive oil in a slow, steady drizzle. Don't worry if the texture is soupy; the purée will stiffen as it chills. Once chilled, stir in the chopped mint and adjust the seasoning.
