5 Minute Black Bean Hummus
5 minute black bean hummus is a fun spin on the classic! Black beans are blended with lime juice, tahini, garlic and some spices for a deliciously creamy dip.
- 15 oz can of black beans liquid reserved; see note 1
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- ½ teaspoon cumin
- ½ teaspoon ground coriander
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne more for heat
Blend liquids- in a 7 cup food processor fitted with a steel S blade, combine 2 tablespoons of reserved liquid from the can of black beans (or cooking liquid), garlic, olive oil, tahini, lime juice, cumin, ground coriander, salt and cayenne. Blend on low speed for 1 full minute, until smooth and frothy.
Add black beans- Add the black beans to the food processor. Blend on high speed for 1 minute, then scrape the sides down with a spatula. Blend for an additional 1 minute, until smooth and creamy
1- home cooked black beans can also be used; I measured out 15 oz on a kitchen scale which included a small amount of the cooking liquid. If you use home cooked black beans you do not need to puree the liquid with the other ingredients first; just place all ingredients in the processor and blend together.
- fridge- store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- freezer- freeze in freezer bags (freeze flat, then store upright), or meal prep containers for up to 3 months.
