Method

  1. Put the broad beans, garlic, olive oil and lemon juice in a food processor and blend them well until combined.
  2. Being careful of the blade from the food processor, transfer the mixture to a saucepan and stir in the water, cumin and paprika.
  3. Over a medium heat, heat the dip in the saucepan for 3–5 minutes. Serve warm with warm pitta breads.

Substitute the broad beans for chickpeas and voila, you have hummus! No need to heat hummus up
