Spicy Black Bean Hummus can be completed in absolute minutes.  That gets you out of the kitchen and the party started at just about the same time.  I am all about a party. The smallest excuse becomes an event.  If a friend comes over to visit – it’s a party. A mere mention of a special day such as ‘grandparents day’ – it’s a party.  I seriously can’t look at a calendar.  Well, this dip is perfect for such a time.  It is creamy as the original hummus we all know and love but you add in the black beans and you get more texture along with all of it’s wonderful health benefits.  Serve it with your favorite chips and vegetables. Then you can enjoy it with your family and friends and get lots of complements at the same time.

Spicy Black Bean Hummus

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 3-1/2 to 4 cups dip

Serving Size: 1/4 - 1/2 cup maybe

Ingredients

1 can (15 oz.) Black Beans, drained and rinsed

1 can (15 oz.) Chickpeas (garbanzo), drained and rinsed

3 garlic cloves, finely minced

1/4 cup Tahini

4 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 teaspoon sea salt

Directions

To a food processor - add both beans, chopped garlic, tahini, lemon juice, cumin and salt.

Process until it is smooth. The black beans will have itty bitty little pieces - see the photo. That just makes it better.

You know how 'they' pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil on hummus? Well, if you like you could drizzle a Tablespoon of coconut oil over the top.

Yum!

IF FREEZING:

Package in rigid sided containers as defined in my article http://veganinthefreezer.com/preparing-food-for-the-freezer

TO PREPARE AFTER FREEZING:

Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

You could heat in the microwave and serve with chips and veggies of your choice. Heating is not necessary though. But ... it's good.

  1. Yum! I just wrote a hummus recipe made by hand earlier this week because I don’t have a food processor, but I think I’m getting one for Mother’s Day! I’m pinning this as one of the first recipes I will try :) Thanks!

  2. What a great idea. I have both black beans and chickpeas in the fridge, as I typically keep both on hand. I cook dry beans in the slow cooker so I don’t need to rely on canned beans. I love hummus so I can’t wait to try this tomorrow.

    • Thanks Christie! Yes, a blender will work. To get it going you will need to turn off the motor and push it down with a wooden spoon every few seconds. You will have to work at it a little harder.
