  3. Combine the vinegar, 1 clove garlic, cumin, paprika, honey, salt and olive oil in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Drizzle the carrots with olive oil then generously season them with salt and pepper tossing to coat.
  5. Grill the carrots 5-8 minutes per side until they have grill marks and are fork tender.
  6. Remove and allow to cool. 
  7. Put the beans in a blender with a tablespoon of the cooking liquid, lemon juice, 1/2 clove of garlic, a sprinkle of salt and freshly cracked pepper. Blend until smooth.
  8. Spread the bean puree on the bottom of a serving plate.
  9. Toss the carrots in the dressing, use tongs to place the carrots on top of the bean puree, sprinkle with parsley and nigella seeds and enjoy.
