Curried Black Bean Hummus

This is the way my friend Alondra makes her black bean hummus. There's no tahini in it which makes it a little cheaper than regular hummus--and you might have all the ingredients already on hand! I don't like regular hummus with plain ol' carrot sticks, but the curry kick in this is delicious with veggies!! Try it.

~recipe from allrecipes.com

  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained
  • 1 cup canned garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
Place black beans, garbanzo beans, olive oil, lemon juice, yogurt, water, and garlic into the bowl of a blender. Season with curry powder, salt, and pepper. Cover and puree until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.  

~Makes about 2 cups
