Saw this dish on the Today Show this week and thought it looked super easy and healthy. We improvised a little bit by adding some onion and spices to boost the flavor.
If you’re looking for a great New Year’s Day appetizer, this might do the trick!
Black Bean Hummus
1 15 oz. can black beans
1/4 white or yellow onion, minced
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (adjust amount if necessary)
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (also can adjust)
Dash of cayenne pepper and paprika
Juice of 1 lemon (could also add just a squirt of fresh lime juice)
Mince onions by hand or in food processor. Add onion, black beans, olive oil, cumin and lemon juice to food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. Place in serving dish and top with chopped onion or fresh cilantro. Serve with raw veggies and crackers.
