Hummus is a Middle Eastern dish is relished for its mild flavor and creamy texture. Hummus made with black beans is a storehouse of fiber and proteins apart from key vitamins and minerals. Team it up with salads - carrots, capsicums, onions or whole wheat crackers!



  • 1 can black beans (200g), rinsed and drained OR 200g fresh/dried black beans prepared
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice (or more to taste)
  • 1 small handful of basil leaves
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 large pinch of sesame seeds
  • Optional: red chilli to taste – I personally LOVE it HOT HOT HOT!



In a food processor, process black beans, lemon juice, basil, sesame seeds and garlic until thick. If it’s TOO thick, you can add a little water or tahini (if you have it).
