Black Bean Hummus

I love black beans! The taste of black bean hummus is not only amazing but the health benefits are wonderful as well. I can think of 5 right off of the top of my head. Digestive tract benefits, benefits for blood sugar regulation and cardiovascular benefits. Given the impressive array of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients in black beans, I am not  surprised to see numerous studies connecting black bean intake with reduced risk of certain cancers, especially colon cancer. So eat up!
1 15 oz can of black beans, drained
1/4 cup tahini
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
 
In a Cuisinart Food Processor, process all of the ingredients until smooth and creamy. If it is too thick just add 1/2 teaspoon  of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of lime juice. Serve with pita bread. Enjoy!
