I use to buy this stuff in the store and get grossed out by it. Then I saw a recipe posted by tdiprincess for black bean hummus and finally tried it! I am sooooo hooked!
I have located every can of black beans in the house I could find and have made this just about every day for the last week. Here is my recipe that I have come up with after several batches. This stuff is good, good on just about anything!
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 clove of garlic (easy on the garlic, it can over power quickly)
2 cayenne peppers ( I love heat so this is a personal choice, use what ever peppers you like or no peppers at all!)
juice of 1/2 lime
2 T tahini (I searched high and lo for this stuff and finally made my own.)
1 T flat leaf parsley or cilantro (I use what ever I have on hand)
1 roma tomato, seeded and chunked
1 tsp chili powder ( I used Penzey's Hot Chili Powder)
1 tsp onion powder
kosher salt to taste
Toss in a food processor and whip it good!
For the tahini... I lightly roasted 1 c of sesame seeds at 300 for 10 minutes. Stirring occasionally and ensuring that they did not brown. Let cool, add to food processor and 1/4 c of evoo. That will make enough for at least 4 batches of black bean hummus.
Hope you enjoy it, cuz I can live on this stuff!!! Hubby loves the garlic aroma of my breath!!!!
