So, workin' late last night, and felt like a bit of a snack. And felt like procrastinating. What better time to make black bean hummus. Black beans, gram for gram, have more fibre and 25 per cent fewer calories than chickpeas. And they beat out other beans when it comes to antioxidants (link).

Fast and really easy.

Can of black beans, drained
1.5 teaspoons of tahini
2-3 cloves of garlic
some lime juice
some lemon juice
some cumin
some paprika
some dill weed

All ingredients to taste, and really all are optional other than the beans and tahini.

one cup. hand blender.

So, it came out a bit runny... too much tahini I think, and too long under the blender. But, really, really delicious, and a ton of leftovers.
