3 tsp ground cumin
1 tbs lemon juice

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook broad beans for 2 minutes. Drain and plunge into cold water. Drain again and remove the outer skins.
Place broad beans and remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl, drizzle with a little extra oil and sprinkle lightly with extra sumac. Serve with pitta or Turkish bread.
This is also nice in sandwich wraps or with a mezze plate.
1kg fresh broad beans will give you 350g podded beans. To prepare fresh beans, remove beans from pods and slip off skin.
