Black Bean Hummus

After making the Roasted Red Pepper Hummus from my last post, one of my guests thoughtfully handwashed the food processor so we could prepare our next hummus recipe, this one made with black beans. It also was from My mom found both of these recipes, she uses that website a lot for her online recipe searches.

1 clove garlic
1 (15 ounce) can black beans; drain and reserve liquid
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika

Mince the garlic in the food processor, then add add the rest of the ingredients along with 2 tbsp reserved bean juice, though the cayenne to the food processor bowl. Puree until smooth. (I just realized after reading the recipe that we added the paprika to the rest of the ingredients instead of using it as a garnish).We might have made a mistake by putting the paprika into the mix, but I don't care. It was SO good, all four of us cooks were eating it so quickly we realized we should have made a double batch so there would be enough left over for the party. Again, we served it with crackers and a veggie tray. This recipe will absolutely be made again in the near future.
