New Flavor Combo
My youngest daughter use to work at the local Farmer’s Market. One day she came home raving about a black bean hummus she had tried. I was totally intrigued with the idea so knew I had to figure out how to make it.
I’ll be the first to admit, black bean hummus is not the prettiest dish, but the flavor combination is great. It is made with black beans, garlic, roasted red peppers, Greek yogurt, tahini and also uses my Garlic and Herb Spice mix. (link) Hummus is usually made with garbanzo beans, but the black beans are a fun and flavorful change.
What is Tahini?
Tahini is an ingredient found in all hummus recipes and one you might not be familiar with. In it’s simplest form it is ground up toasted sesame seeds and helps give hummus it’s unique flavor. Tahini is easily found in your local grocery store and is commonly found in the peanut butter aisle.
How to Make Hummus?
The process is simple.
- Place ingredients in a blender or food processor.
- Pulse with the food processor until the ingredients are combined. The hummus will not be totally smooth because of the black beans. There will still be small pieces of black bean in the hummus which gives it a nice texture.
What To Serve With Hummus?
- Bread. Use it as a condiment in place of mayo or mustard on your favorite sandwich.
- Pita Chips or Crackers. Make your own pita chips with this recipe.
- Vegetables. Enjoy with carrots, celery, broccoli, cauliflower or sliced peppers.
- Chips. Dip with tortillas.
