A deliciously seasoned broad bean, onion and tomato spread. This recipe is inspired by a dish traditionally served with pita bread for breakfast in Egypt. A great way to use broad beans when they're in season, but feel free to use frozen when they're not.

This recipe is an Algerian vegetarian dish but may be served with a variety of different meat including lamb and chicken. I originally tasted this about thirty years ago and it was prepared by a friend who was born in the Middle East. It's sometimes known as Tchoutchouka.

This is called Middle Eastern broad bean stew and not Moroccan, because I have also borrowed flavours from my Lebanese roots. The first time my carnivorous partner tried it, he honestly thought it contained meat. To make this dish completely vegetarian/vegan, omit the anchovies. Serve with steamed basmati rice or couscous.

The inspiration for this dish was a recipe for a lamb and okra dish, bamya, given to me many years ago by an Egyptian diplomat's wife. It's gone through a few transitions to its present form! Serve at room temperature with barbecued meat, or as a hot side dish with grilled chicken breasts etc. Or it can be served on its own as a vegetarian dish.
