Prepare the ingredients & marinate the carrots:
1 Prepare the ingredients & marinate the carrots:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Drain and rinse the beans; place in a medium bowl. Halve the baguettes. Remove any husks and silks from the corn; cut the kernels off the cobs. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the green rind, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Quarter the lime. Thinly slice the cucumber lengthwise. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. Place in a bowl. Stir in the juice of 2 lime wedges and 1 tablespoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.

2 Make the white bean spread:

While the carrots marinate, to the bowl of drained beans, add the tahini, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash until smooth. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Toast the baguettes:
3 Toast the baguettes:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the halved baguettes, cut side down. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until toasted. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the corn:
4 Cook the corn:

In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the corn kernels in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned (be careful, as the corn may pop as it cooks). Season with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the dukkah. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to  2 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat. Stir in the lime zest, the juice of the remaining lime wedges, and a drizzle of olive oil. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
