Black bean hummus

black bean hummus

Ingredients: Tahini, garlic, black beans, lemon juice, spices ( smoky sweet paprika, cumin, cayenne) salt and olives
Enough of the goat babies for a while.  Let's get back to some good food:  Black Bean Hummus:  a nice Latin twist to hummus.  Try it.  It takes about 5 minutes to make in your Cuisinart.  I use the smoky sweet paprika from Williams-Sonoma

1 can black beans, drained and reserve 2 Tbs of liquid
1 clove garlic
2 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs Tahini (sesame seed butter)
3/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
10 Greek olives

  1. Mince garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Add black beans, 2 tablespoons reserved liquid, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, tahini, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add additional seasoning and liquid to taste. Garnish with paprika and Greek olives.    from
