Easy Black Bean Hummus Recipe

Often I’d buy hummus in the store, but until recently didn’t realize how easy and inexpensive it can be to make it myself. This recipe is gluten-free, rich in protein and fiber and is delicious served with raw veggies such as celery, carrots, or sliced bell peppers. It can also be used as a spread. Enjoy!

In a blender or food processor, puree the following ingredients until smooth:

1 14 oz can of black beans, rinsed and drained
3 tbs. sesame tahini
2 tbs. lemon juice
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. turmeric or curry powder
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. celtic salt or other sea salt

Transfer hummus to a serving container. Drizzle with olive oil before serving. Makes approximately 2 cups of hummus. Image
