Some of my early memories of beans is of my mother feeding bowling of sous pwa (bean puree) to my baby brother. This is one way to eat beans or you can eat it accompanied with rice, alone as a soup garnished with sour cream or even with some bread. Beans are a great source of protein, fiber and iron.

1-2 cups of raw beans (red or black) or 
      {For semicookers: 1 can}
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of thyme
1 teaspoon of pepper
10 cups of water
Mesh strainer
1 Bay leaf
1/4 cup of vegetable oil 
1/2 teaspoon of Adobe seasoning (optional)

In a saucepan, add beans,4 cups of water, salt and boil until beans are soft and edible. Pour 1 cup of cooked beans into blender and add 1 cup of water. Be sure to add garlic clove and puree for 2 minutes. Place mesh strainer over bowl and strain puree then discard whatever is left in strainer. In a saucepan on medium temperature, pour in puree, 1 1/2 cup of water, oil, remaining beans, add thyme and bay leaf. 

Cook on medium temperature for 5 minutes and remove bay leaf. Add Adobe seasoning and cook on medium low temperature for an additional 5 minutes allowing sauce to thicken. Add more water if you want a thinner sauce.
