Any appetizer tray will be more delicious with dipping sauce or with dip دیپ and is perfect for any family or friends gatherings and party.
One of nice dipping sauce is Fava bean dip دیپ لپه باقالی, which is, creamy, delight , rich and full of flavour. Fava beans dip is made with just a few simple ingredients and blended with a food processor. This dip is high in protein, low in cost and very comfy dip. You can use it as a dip or spread onto sandwiches or naan bread.
I used dried yellow Fava beans (split fava beans) which is called Lapeh baghali لپه باقالی in Farsi language. Fava beans or board beans are used in Iranian cuisine. Also in many Middle Eastern and African countries is used.
Next day, beans will be double in size. Drain the water and set aside.
Add olive oil and diced onions into a deep pot. Saute onions until tender and soft.
add drained Fava beans.
Season with salt and sugar.
Pour in 5 cups water. Give a good stir. Allow to cook on a medium heat for about 30 minutes until fava beans tender.
Duringcooking, white foam come out. Start scooping foam off that forms on the surface.
After 30 minutes, turn off the heat. Use a blender and blend fava beans mixture until is puréed. Now, we have a runny fava beans puree.
Allow to cool. Then, transfer it to a deep dish and spread it evenly. Place it in the fridge for 3-4 hours. The fava dip will thicken as it cools. Once you want to serve it, you may cut it into pieces as you see in the photos or simply with a spoon mash it . Garnish with caramelized onions and dill or just drizzle with olive oil and eat it with flat naan bread or any favourite bread.
