I'm on a Hummus kick!
 
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!!!! :lol:

This one sounds good Sattie. Have you tried the chick pea hummus with a southwest chipotle flavor? It's quite tastey.

No I have not!!! But want to try it all at this point. I guess since I am out of black beans, I have no choice but to branch out. You have a recipe for that Miss Dina??? Purty please!?

www.applesforhealth.com/HealthyAppetizers/sochphum5.html I would use garbanzo beans (chick peas) for this recipe. Enjoy.

Sounds good! I love hummus any kind, bean, chickpea whatever. This time of year it is so delicious with fresh green or wax beans, crispy from the garden.

Roast your own red peppers (peeled and seeded of course) and add those to your hummus. Normally it's used in conjunction with garbanzo beans but I think they might give a nice twist to the black beans too!

Thanks for posting this sattie - I need to get my rear in gear as this would make a good meal - just add fermented grapes for the fruit :lol:

I thoght that humus is made from garbanzo beans, not regular beans?

Sattie! Thank you!
I spend $8 bucks on a jar of Tahini, I didn't think I could make my own!

Charlie I use garbanzos in my hummus also.

Hummus with pesto is really good, too :D

It may not be anything like the jarred stuff, but since I can't find it anywhere, I'm not going to know the difference! :lol: If you try it, let me know if it even compares.
