Black Eye Bean Hummus

Black Eye Bean Hummus

Black Eye Bean Hummus

This is one of those "healthy" recipes...I used fresh raw green beans to dip with. Anyone who likes regular hummus, and those "earthy" types of food will love this as a healthy snack or even make a meal of it! It was a nice change up from chickpea hummus. Definitely a keeper:)

1 1/3 cup soaked and cooked Black Eye Beans (Can use canned, but then there is more salt.)
2 green onions chopped (tops and bottoms)
1 stalk of celery chopped
4-5 tsp fresh parsley chopped
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp spicy mustard
little less than a 1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tsp soy sauce

In a food processor pulse celery, parsley, and onions till chopped fine.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse, mix, and chop away till blended smooth.

Spread on pita bread, chips, crackers, or use as a dip with veggies.
I ate with raw green beans, but the next day I used to dip with chips....soooo good.
Best when served cold. I think maybe even better next day:) Keep in fridge in air tight container.
