Summary

Once upon a time, hummus meant one thing: a dip or spread of garbanzo beans with lemon, tahini, olive oil, and spices. No more, though. These days, hummus can mean a whole buffet table’s worth of delicious spreads, made with all kinds of beans and vegetables. Here, canned black beans stand in for the traditional legume, for intriguing (and just plain tasty) results.

Instructions

  1. 1In the bowl of a food processor, combine the black beans, garlic clove, tahini, vinegar, lime juice, water, jalapeño, olive oil, cumin, salt, and black pepper. Process on high until well combined and smooth. (Add additional water if you prefer a hummus that’s less dense.)
  2. 2Add half the cilantro and pulse a few times until the leaves are chopped and incorporated into the hummus.
  3. 3Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, sprinkle with the reserved cilantro, and serve with pita or tortilla chips.
