Black Bean Hummus

Tahini is usually a staple to Hummus – and it’s not necessarily bad for you.  But, here is an option for a healthier “Tahini-Free’ Hummus (plus it’s super quick and easy).  Another plus- easy to put into small Tupperware containers and take with some carrots, crackers, celery, etc to eat for a snack at work.

Ingredients:

  • 1 15 ounce can chickpeas, drained (garbanzo peans)
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, drained
  • 1 tbsp minced onion (I use dried- found in spice section at grocery store)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until desired smoothness
  2. Eat

Review:

Again- it’s been over a month since I’ve made this.  But- I remember it being a healthy snack that tasted healthy.  It was really really good- but next time I may add some Cayenne Pepper to give it a bit of a kick.
