Black Bean Hummus

BM # 71
Week 1, Day 2
Theme : Dips, Chutneys and Spreads

With the Mega marathon we tend to learn many new dishes and while I took Sandwiches as my sub theme for Cooking Carnival I made this Black Bean Hummus as a spread for my bread sticks. The hummus tastes excellent and is a wonderful substitute to the original chickpea hummus.

The bean hummus is my Day 2 post under Dips, Chutneys and Spreads as my theme for the first week.

1 cup black beans , cooked or tinned

1 tsp cumin seeds
