How to make it
- Rinse beans well, then place in a bowl, cover with 2 cups water and allow to soak overnight.
- If using peeled beans, transfer them and their soaking water to a large heavy-bottomed sauce pan. If using unpeeled beans, drain, then add to the saucepan with 2 cups fresh water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 5-6 hours. Check water level and add hot water as needed to keep beans moist. Do not stir, but shake the saucepan occasionally to keep the beans from sticking. Set aside to cool slightly.
- Puree the contents of the saucepan in a food processor, then transfer to a bowl and stir in the garlic, cumin, and lemon juice. Gradually stir in enough olive oil to give a dipping consistency. As mixture cools, it may thicken. You can stir in a little warm water to return to dipping consistency.
- Spread over a large dish and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with flatbread cut into triangles. Serves 6.
