Picture of Lobio with Onions
This version of lobio is made with pureed beans and onions, and is fragrant with spices.  Like Lobio with tomatoes or beans with kale, it can come together in about half an hour for a great meatless weeknight dinner option.

Ingredients:
3 15 oz cans pinto beans (or 1 lb / 500 g dry pinto beans, prepared according to package directions)
2 medium yellow onions
about 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch of saffron
cilantro
2 cloves garlic (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste

Coarsely chop the onions and garlic.  Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot or dutch oven, and add the onions when the oil begins to shimmer.  Stir and cook over medium heat until tender, about 10 minutes.  Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, careful to not let it burn.

Pour in the undrained beans and stir well.  Simmer gently for about 10 minutes.
