I was hunting around the other day waiting to pick the girls up and I stumbled across a recipe for Black Bean Hummus. Turns out a friend of mine has also been requesting a recipe from me for hummus. I gave her my original one that is here, but this black bean one sounded really good to me and i couldn’t get it out of my head. I love black beans and who doesn’t love a nice garlicky hummus???
This came together in a matter of minutes in my food processor. I think stirring up the tahini took more time the the recipe!
Black Bean Hummus (from All Recipes)
1 clove garlic
1 (15 ounce) can black beans; drain and reserve liquid

***I calculated this for WW as 2 points for a 1/4 cup serving…that’s not including the yummy pita that you HAVE to have with it!
