Healthy Black Bean Hummus Recipe

  • 1 pound dried organic black beans
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Morton® Lite Salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ bunch cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg® Liquid Aminos (optional)

Soak black beans in cold water for 1–2 hours. Drain in colander.

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, add beans and the next 7 ingredients through bay leaves. Simmer 1½ hours or until beans are tender.

Remove from stove and cool slightly. Place beans in a food processor or blender and add enough of the cooking liquid to purée into a smooth paste.

Remove and place into a bowl. Fold in cilantro and Bragg® Liquid Aminos. Adjust seasonings as desired and refrigerate until cool.

Serve with raw vegetables, pita bread and your favorite salad items, or with tortilla chips and salsa.
