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.
HOW MUCH FIBER DO BLACK BEANS HAVE?
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!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH BLACK BEAN HUMMUS:
This particular recipe can be served with many things, or even just as a side dish with a Mexican-inspired meal. But if you are serving it as a dip, here are some ideas for what to serve it with.
- Dehydrated zucchini chips (my favorite!)
- Wide strips of red bell peppers
- Homemade, whole wheat baked tortilla chips

BLACK BEAN HUMMUS RECIPE:
A delicious alternative to a classic hummus.
- 4 cups cooked black beans (drained and rinsed, no sugar added if canned)
- 1 tbsp. lime juice (fresh is best)
- 1 cup tahini
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. ground cumin
- 2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 cup water plus more as needed for consistency
Place all ingredients in a food processor and add water.
Begin blending and add water as needed, about a 1/4 - 1/2 cup at a time until you get your desired consistency.
This will thicken just slightly in the fridge.
Adjust salt to your liking, blending again to mix well.
Serve with your favorite dippers!
