Whether you’re making a spread or making breakfast, this dairy-free black bean dip is a delicious, easy, and healthy addition. It’s a twist on the classic hummus, with black beans, lime, and a touch of silken tofu. It’s a little sweeter, creamier and a little tastier. You can even spice it up, if you like.
Healthy black bean dip that’s a kick to make
This recipe has been adapted from The 12 Best Foods Cookbook by Dana Jacobi in 2006. Today we give an update to the recipe! In her book, she focuses on the following 12 superfoods: broccoli, black beans, tomatoes, salmon, soybeans, sweet potatoes, oats, onions, blueberries, walnuts, spinach and chocolate. Not all of her recipes are dairy-free, but many are or are easily adaptable.
If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a blender. In a pinch, you can just put the ingredients in a mixing bowl and use a hand blender.
calcium tip: Use whole seed tahini. Combined with black beans and tofu, this recipe provides about 80 mg of calcium per serving. And it’s pretty easy to eat more than one serving!
