• 2 cups drained cooked or canned black beans (water or liquid reserved)
  • 5 tablespoons tahini
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch cumin
  • pinch cayenne pepper


Place the drained beans in a food processor or blender with the tahini, lemon juice, and oil. Puree until smooth. Add some of the reserved liquid until the hummus forms a thick paste. Add the remaining ingredients and puree to blend. Spoon into a serving bowl and chill for at least two hours for the flavors to blend.
