This is loosely based on b’sarra, a Moroccan broad/fava bean soup and popular street food. There are also Egyptian versions of the soup that are made with different types of bean, or with a reduced amount of stock to make a substantial bean dip. To turn this soup into a dip, reduce the amount of stock by two-thirds and blend until smooth and creamy. The cumin carrot mash is my addition and lends texture, flavour and extra substance to the soup.
