This recipe is so easy - it takes just minutes to put together! The health benefits from the black beans, the tamari and umeboshi are beyond! PLUS tahini is a delicious addition to just about any recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)
Ingredients:2 cups no-salt-added cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/4 cup tahini
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons reduced-sodium tamari
1 teaspoon umeboshi vinegar or 2 teaspoons lemon juice (or to taste)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Combine black beans, garlic, tahini, cumin, water, tamari, vinegar and chives in a food processor. Pulse until smooth and all ingredients are combined. Transfer to a serving bowl, fold in cilantro and serve.
You can serve the hummus with chips, pita, fruit or veggies. You can also use it as a spread for a sandwich or a quesadilla (YUM!!!).
