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
- Drain and rinse organic black beans. Put rinsed beans into a food processor.
- 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.
- 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!
