Recipe: Black Bean Hummus

For lovers of hummus and black beans like myself, this Cooking Light recipe makes a simple yet tasty and healthy dip. I served mine with tortilla chips I made by baking tortilla strips sprayed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt at 425 degrees.
  • 1  garlic clove, peeled
  • 2  tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon  tahini (roasted sesame seed paste)
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1  (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
  • 2  teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil

  • Place garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add lemon juice, tahini, cumin, salt, pepper, and black beans; process until smooth. Spoon bean mixture into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil.


  1. This is delicious! I just sent the link to Paul, since he wanted it. I'm not sure I have the right pieces to the food processor (don't ask) but I have a magic bullet - would that work?

  2. I am sure that anything that is strong enough to mash up beans will work just fine. Also, I have been putting in two garlic cloves lately; that's why it was so very garlicky. Enjoy.
