Black Bean Hummus

Black Bean Hummus

Paul and I are big fans of hummus…all kinds, we love it.  I also love to make it from scratch.  But you know what I don’t like?  Peeling those little skins from the chickpeas.  It weirdly grosses me out and so I choose not to do it very often.

You know what doesn’t have skins that makes really stellar hummus?  Yep – black beans!  And they just go so well with some of my favorite herbs and spices like cilantro, cumin, Sriracha and lime juice.  So my love for Mexican foods and flavors meets somewhat-healthy for this black bean hummus.  And what makes it even easier is my trusty Blendtec whips it up in no time, with virtually little effort on my part.  I used the Twister Jar which has a lid that spins in the opposite direction of the blade and helps all of the ingredients to be incorporated so quickly.

I made this dip for a meetup of some Kansas City Bloggers.  (Have I ever mentioned that I am so grateful for a group like this?)  I was in a hurry, threw in what I had on hand, and ran out the door.  But failed to photograph.  And of course, everyone loved it.  So it didn’t take me long to throw together another batch of black bean hummus to share with you.  It’s so creamy and flavorful.  And did I mention super simple and quick?  I know it lacks tradition, but this is probably going to make an appearance at Thanksgiving!

You might remember when I reviewed my trusty Blendtec blender a while back when I made Limemade Green Smoothies…I have enjoyed lots of smoothies, homemade salsa, crushed up the crumbs for the crust of my pecan pie bars…you get the idea.

    Sweet potatoes are my absolute favorite. I love them baked, roasted, mashed…pretty much any way except coated in marshmallow. Who needs marshmallow when they taste so yum all on their own! :)

    I did a deep fried turkey last year and will never go back. It has now become my favorite dish on the Thanksgiving menu.

    I would have to say the dressing. I have a delicious recipe with sage sausage. from a dear older woman I knew. She is no longer with us and every time i think about her when I make it. Plus an added bonus, my boys love it and request I make it a few times a year. Great Memories!

    I love baked/roasted whole sweet potatoes.

    Marie — November 20, 2012 @ 11:45 am

    It’s gotta be my family’s cheesy potato casserole. It’s really simple, but I only get it a couple times a year (because it is definitely not the healthiest thing to be eating)!

    My all time favorite dish has to be the stuffing – I could probably eat that alone!

    My favorite recipe is my Nanny’s sweet potatoes. She mashes them with white sugar, vanilla, and butter, and tops them with browned mini-marshmallows. It’s like eating dessert!

    I start getting excited about making Thanksgiving stuffing about a month in advance. We make an Italian style stuffing loaded with sausage, olives, mushrooms, celery onions broth and of course copious amounts of butter. It is heaven. I also get excited about making cranberry sauce. This year it is flavored with ginger beer and orange juice. Yum. :)
