I love black beans and so do my kids!  They also love hummus.  I make my own hummus once in awhile, but I buy a lot of pre-made hummus too.  Make sure to check the ingredients on the one you buy to ensure it only contains olive oil, not soybean oil.  I was bummed when I realized that one I had been buying a lot contained soybean oil.  Not only is soybean oil a poor choice, but you can bet it is genetically-modified soy.  My kids eat way too much hummus to have that as a staple in our house!  So I buy Holyland instead.  They sell it at Costco which is a bonus!  There are many small brands I like too, because they are made with high-quality ingredients.

But my point today is about black bean dip!  I would call it black bean hummus, but without the chickpeas and tahini, it’s not technically hummus anymore!  I love tahini, even eating it as a dip by itself.  But it can be expensive.  Especially when you go through it as quickly as I do!  So, I set out to make a yummy black bean tahini-less hummus dip.  It’s good to switch up your beans, and any bean dip is super simple to make if you have a food processor or blender.  I use my Vitamix.  Not shocking, I know, I use my Vitamix for everything!

This would be a good one to make for the Superbowl!  Much healthier than store-bought dips.  Let me know what you think of this one!
