A spin on the standard hummus, this recipe swaps chickpeas for black beans. Serve with your favorite veggies, chips or spread on your favorite sandwich.


  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Add all ingredients (other than salt) into a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. If the mixture is too thick, add a tablespoon of water until desired texture is reached.

  2. Season to taste with salt.

  3. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to three days.
