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.

Black Bean Hummus

1 cup black beans , cooked or tinned 
4-6 cloves garlic 
2 tbsp olive oil 
2 tbsp vinegar 
1 tsp cumin seeds 
2 tbsp tahini 
Sea salt to taste 

Blend all ingredients to a smooth paste. 
Remove in a bowl. 
Sprinkle red chilly powder. 
Drizzle olive oil lavishly.
