Black Bean’s Revenge

Remember in my Holy Hummamole post that I told you I love love love avocado? Well, I also love love love black beans. Therefor, black bean hummus… yes, please!

Be forwarned, there is no possible way to make black bean hummus look good. I tried. And failed. If you are ever going to believe anything I say, believe this. Black bean hummus is incredible!

Here’s what you need: 

*1 can black beans, liquid separated and beans rinsed

*Lots and lots of Cilantro

*1 can Chickpeas, rinsed and drained

*2Tbls. Tahini (found at natural markets)

*3 Tbls. FRESH Lime juice (I rarely measure, just use a whole lime)

*1 Tbl. Olive (or canola) oil

*2 or 3 garlic cloves, chopped.

*A couple “shakes” of the following: chili powder, cumin, paprika, black pepper, sea salt, and cayanne. Feel free to adapt this portion to your liking. . . I like mine flavorful! *I did not have a lime so used a lemon. It’s better with lime though.

Throw everything into your wonder machine food processor and process on high. Yumm!

If your hummus is too thick, add some of that leftover black bean juice. . .

Enjoy with baby carrots for a healthy treat.

Like I said, there’s no way to make it look good. Turn back now if food appearance is important to you. My pre-lunch snack nearly everyday.

What kind o hummus is your favorite?

What do you eat your hummus with? crackers? blue corn chips? veggies, like me?

P.S. If I started putting these recipes on this cute recipe card I designed, would anyone want one e-mailed to them? Just e-mail me!
