Black Bean Hummus

by Kelli H. on July 7, 2011

Say hello to my little black bean hummus. HELLO!  
It’s really just a black bean dip – I kind of lied on that one…Sorry! 
I made this for a little family get together we had over the weekend.  It was inspired by Cooking Light Magazine March 2011 but since I never have tahini on hand I had to wing it.  It actually worked and was pretty dang good if I do say so myself. 
Black Bean Hummus
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, plus a little more for garnish
2 T water
2 T fresh lime juice
2 T sesame oil
3/4 t ground cumin
1/4 t salt
1 (15 oz) can no-salt-added black beans, drained and rinsed 
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 jalapeno, sedded
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.  Garnish with remaining cilantro.
Could it BE any easier?  
I think not!
Enjoy 🙂

Sesame oil sounds like a good substitute! I always have some in my pantry that I don’t use very often!

Hmmm, I just may have to try this. I don’t like regular hummus, so this may be just right for me.
