I have used many different beans including black eyed peas in my hummus. Today I had some black beans, so I decided to throw a quick spread together.
Black Bean Hummus
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 t Tony’s Creole Seasoning
- 2 T lime juice
- 2 T no sugar added peanut butter
- 1 1/2 c black beans
- 1 chipotle pepper in adobo (from a can) or 1/2 tsp smoked paprika is you don't like heat.
- Pulse garlic and Tony’s
- Add the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth
You definitely want to let this sit for a bit to allow all of the flavors to get to know each other

I think the next recipe I'll share will be my Middle Eastern Lentil Hummus. It is sooo good!
This morning I was craving some raw veggies. I knew I had kale and turnips, ginger, garlic and sesame seeds. I created a delicious dressing that is infused with so much flavor, but no oil. I used chia seeds to both thicken the dressing and provide a satisfying mouthfeel. I normally use flax meal in my dressings, but chia works even better I think. I tossed both the kale and the turnip in the salad dressing along with a fair amount of siracha.
- 3 T toasted sesame seeds
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1 c water, broth or bean cooking liquid
- 2 T soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 T chopped ginger
- pinch stevia
- 1/4 t lemon peppper
- 1/8 t cumin
- 2 T apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
If you don't have chia seeds, you can use 1 T of flax meal.
