Black Bean Hummus
Prep time
Total time
I honestly don't recall where I first stumbled across this unique hummus blend, but it was a keeper. If you are using home-cooked beans, you may need to season with a touch of sea salt, to taste.
Serves: 1½ cups or about 8 servings
  • 2 cups cooked black beans (just a little more than a drained 15-ounce can)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce or wheat-free tamari (for gluten-free)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro, or to taste (optional)
  1. Place the black beans, tahini, water, oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and cumin in your food processor, and blend until well combined. If you don't have a food processor, you can mash it together with a fork and use a hand blender for a creamier finish.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a serving bowl and fold in the hot sauce and cilantro, if desired.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips, pita bread, or vegetables.
