Black Bean Hummus

This is a great alternative to a traditional chickpea hummus.  I doctored up this recipe from something my friend Carrie served at book club.


  • 1/4+ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 3/8 tsp salt
  • 1 can black beans, no salt added (if using salted black beans, just add salt to taste)
  • 1 large garlic clove or 2 small/medium garlic cloves

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.  Add water (1 tsp at a time), if needed for consistency.

Serve with sliced veggies or chips or pita!  Enjoy!

    Love the different kinds of hummus. Just had pumpkin hummus on bread with slices of cucumber for lunch. Makes a great sandwich filling!
