Black Bean Hummus with Olives
A creamy hummus with olives and heart-healthy, antioxidant-rich black beans. This is a great alternative to the traditional chickpea hummus and it tastes amazing.
- 3 cups black beans (canned or cooked)
- 14 oz black olives
- ¼ cup tahini
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 large cloves garlic , chopped
- 1 teaspoon cayenne (use less or more based on your preference. Or sub paprika for less heat)
- ½ cup parsley (chopped)
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- Salt to taste
Put all ingredients except the salt and olive oil in a food processor. With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil until the ingredients form a smooth paste.
Add some water if the mixture is too thick. Add salt to taste.
Remove to a bowl.
Sprinkle with red pepper and a few drops of olive oil as a garnish. You can also sprinkle on some za'atar seasoning if you have it.
Serve with pita bread or crudites.
