Black Bean Hummus

Another hummus recipe? Sure, why not! 🙂 

This recipe is Black Bean Hummus, made with black beans instead of chickpeas, smokey paprika and no oil! Serve it with wholegrain crackers, on baked jacket potatoes or with your favourite Mexican dish. Or dip in some delicious sweet potato slices. Yum! 

Ingredients (makes about 2 cups)

200 g  cooked black beans
1 Tbsp warm filtered water
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp tahini
1 – 2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and black pepper to taste
smoked paprika powder to serve (optional)


Combine all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth. Garnish with paprika. Enjoy 

NOTE:  to make sweet potato slices wash and optionally peel a sweet potato, then slice it length ways in half-centimeter thick slices. Put the slices in your toaster or sandwich press and toast until golden brown. Cut into finger sized portions and dip into your favourite hummus!
