Recipe: Black Bean Hummus

Standard

I wanted to make normal hummus, but was out of chickpeas. Luckily I had a tin of black beans to hand. As the colour was already going to be dark I decided to add some more dark ingredients. This is a nice change on ordinary hummus – the olives and tomatoes don’t overwhelm the flavour but add some nice notes in the background.

Ingredients
400g tin black beans, drained
1 large clove garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp tahini
7 black olives
3 sundried tomatoes
2 tbsp sundried tomato oil
handful of fresh parsley

Put all the ingredients, bar one olive, in a food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve with the remaining olive sliced as a garnish.

  1. I got a bit fed-up with sundried tomatoes, which seemed to be the veggie cliche, along with goats cheese and squash, but I will definitely try this, as I suspect the flavour will really work!
