Smashed Potato Stew

This dish was basically inspired by the fava beans I had cleaned, but were just hanging out in the fridge. had to do something with them, potatoes are pretty forgiving, and I thought let's just see how they live together .

Ok I know this picture the potatoes look all large pieces and such, in reality, before this is eaten I take a fork smash, the sauce mingles with the potato and everything just sort of comes together.

Potato Stew
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbsp pepper paste
3 tomatoes, canned or fresh
4 small potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 c fava beans
salt and pepper

Cook onion in olive oil til golden, add garlic, cook for another minute, add tomatoes and pepper paste. Then the potatoes and fava beans, add enough water to cover. Cook for around 20 minutes, until potatoes are cooked, season with salt and pepper.
Serve with yogurt, and smash just before eating.
