Black Bean Hummus: As Seen on The Everyday Show


This recipe is a variation on traditional hummus, using black beans instead of chickpeas. Try it as a wonderful dip for healthy-brand tortilla chips like PopChips, or as a veggie dip with red peppers and jicama. It’s also terrific as a spread for sandwiches or tortilla wraps.


1 can black bean – keep liquid

2 Tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)

1 clove garlic

1 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Dash of sea salt or to taste

Put all of the ingredients, including the liquid from the beans, into a VitaMix, blender or food processor. Blend until smooth or to your desired consistency. Chill and serve.
