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 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.

I had dinner at my Persian friends a few nights and ago and he made this gorgeous dressing to go with lamb kebabs. I have since made it to go with grilled chicken. Especially great with Greek, Moroccan or Middle Eastern dishes and very easy and quick to make. Make sure you use a good quality natural Greek yoghurt.
