Hummus is so easy to make and it’s a healthy snack and appetizer. When you make your own hummus, you know exactly what’s in it and can customize the flavor by adding your own seasonings.
Traditional hummus is made with chickpeas but hummus is versatile and can easily be changed up, for example, by substituting black beans for chickpeas. This delicious dips originates from the Middle East. Serve with chips, veggies or use as a sandwich spread.
Black beans are a legume, also known as a pulse — a food group with a unique nutritional profile.
Black beans are exceptionally high in fiber and are a plant-based protein. Besides being high in fiber and protein, black beans provide calcium, selenium and numerous B vitamins.
1 can black beans, drained, rinsed, pat dry to remove excess water
3 T avocado oil (or oil of your choice)
3 tablespoons tahini
juice of one small lemon
1 clove garlic, or more to taste
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
4 tablespoons water, adding at a proportion of 1 T as needed to achieve desired thickness or creaminess .
Put all into a food processor and puree until desired consistency. I like mine on the chunky side but you may like yours smoother. Top with paprika.
