This black bean hummus is perfect for parties, get-togethers or even just a movie snack at home by yourself.

I took a nutrition class a few weeks back and learned a lot about eating to manage my blood sugars. One of the things that is really important is, getting enough fiber. This is important for ALL of us, but especially when you have blood sugar issues like I do.

A decorative mug sits filled with this Black Bean Hummus. Fresh cilantro is sprinkled over the top and a fresh bunch of cilantro is laying behind the mug.

Few beans have as much fiber as black beans do. A whopping 15 grams per cup! Only pinto beans and navy beans come in higher with 15.4 grams and 19.2 grams, respectively.

Black beans also give you a good dose of iron and magnesium as well a plant-based protein at 15.2 grams. If you are plant-based and want to create a complete protein here, just add a side of rice!
