As per usual, I’ve grown far too many broad beans, it’s fine, we still have a freezer and I save a large amount for seed next year, I have enough in the freezer now so I used a far amount making this dip for a picnic on Saturday, we are still having rissotto’s with them and the asparagus, but probably not for much longer, the beans are getting mealy and the asparagus needs to rest
Pod the beans and blanch for 2-3 mins until tender.

Place beans, garlic, cumin, lemon juice, olive oil and coriander in a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine, but keep the texture slightly chunky. You can use a potato masher if you prefer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Turn out onto a serving plate, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika
