  1. Cook the chopped carrot and garlic in simmering, salted water, for about 20 minutes or until soft.
  2. Drain well, then return them to the hot, dry pan for a minute or two, over medium heat, to dry them out further.
  3. Tip the carrots and garlic into the food processor bowl, and process until smooth.
  4. Add the cumin, paprika, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne, sea salt, honey and lemon juice and whizz again.
  5. With the machine still running, add the olive oil gradually.
  6. Allow to cool.
  7. Spoon into a serving bowl, drizzle with a little extra olive oil, scatter with olives and cilantro leaves, and serve with lightly warmed flat bread for dipping.
