Recipe: Black Bean Hummus

From: Whole Foods Cookbook

Hummus is a delicious middle eastern food – it contains garbanzo beans as it’s protein source. This recipe is a “twist” on the typical hummus – since it contains  black beans and hot sauce – and is always well-received when I serve it. Enjoy!




   1 cup garbanzo beans, cooked and drained

  1/8 cup tahini (sesame seed butter – available in health food sections next to the nut butters)

  2 tsp. finely minced garlic

  1 Tbsp. lemon juice

  ½ cup water

  1 tsp ground cumin

  2 tsp. salt

  1 Tbsp. finely minced fresh parsley

  ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

  ½ tsp. hot sauce

  1 cup cooked and drained black beans (low sodium are healthiest)



Mix all ingredients (except black beans) in food processor. Pulse until well blended but still slightly coarse. Add black beans, pulse but leave it still slightly coarse.
