black bean hummus


1 can of organic black beans, 1 tsp of olive oil, 1-2 cloves of garlic, touch of fresh lemon juice, water to your liking of texture, sea salt to taste pepper to taste


  1. Drain and rinse organic black beans. Put rinsed beans into a food processor.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, a little water and blend. Add more water to desired consistency. Add sea salt and pepper toward the end of mixing.
  3. If this recipe is too bland for you or you want to spice it up, you can add: onion, basil, spices, red pepper, or sundried tomato. This goes great with rice crackers or spread on rice cakes.

I tend to make my guacamole very similar with garlic, salt, pepper, and decided to just play around. I needed a new dip to try so thought I would try to make a black bean dip – and it worked!
