1 c large size dry fava beans, soaked overnight and drained
3 cloves garlic, crushed
salt to taste
1/2 cup olive oil
8 c water
5 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 c chopped parsley

Place the fava beans (fooel beans), garlic, salt, 4 tbsp of olive oil, and water
in a pot; then cook over medium heat until the beans are tender. (personal
note-- I dont recommend adding salt to cooking beans because I find they tend
to toughen up the beans)

Place the beans in food processor and process until smooth, then return to the
pot. Add the lemon juice and cumin, and cook for 5 minutes over low heat.
Spoon into a serving platter. Pour the remaining olive oil evenly over the top;
then sprinkle with the paprika and chili powder. Garnish with parsley and serve.
