Black Bean Hummus


  • 2 15 0z. cans Black Beans (liquid in tact)
  • 1 t. each of ground cumin & salt
  • 1/2 t. each of cayenne pepper & paprika
  • 2 T. fresh minced garlic
  • 6-8 ct. kalamata olives
  • 2 T. lemon juice


  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth mixture. Add the lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Pour into a glass or plastic container and refrigerate until ready to serve or for about 30 minutes. (I prefer mine chilled.) Before serving, sprinkle some additional paprika and sea salt on top.
  • Serve with pita chips or as a sandwich spread.
