Black Bean Hummus is a delicious homemade dip perfect as an appetiser, party tables, or plant-based snack to take away with you. It is a vegan dish that is very creamy and tasty.
Hummus is one of the dips I simply adore to make and enjoy. I have tried different variations and with lots of add-ins. You know what, every time I made it differently, it was even better. No add-ins will worst it; on the contrary, hummus will taste even better and look fancy.
For example, I have tried hummus with beetroot; you can check the recipe here, hummus in a sandwich with raw veggies, hummus topped with fantastic ground beef. They all tasted fantastical.
All of these recipes had the main ingredient, the chickpeas that make the hummus taste so creamy and so delicious. I adore dips, and when it comes to one made with hummus, my heart melts. It assembles quick and with less mess; this is the point I love hummus so much.
I have to be sincere with you and say that I have bought very good quality hummus for this time, but making hummus at home is simple, easy, and tastier. You can check my classic hummus recipe here.
Hummus is a very popular Middle Eastern dip packed with vitamins and minerals. It became very popular in the world, and now you can find hummus in lots of restaurants as antipasti before the main course.
Hummus has many health benefits, such as improving blood sugar control, better digestion, weight loss, and others. It is a gluten-free dish and very famous among vegans.
For today I wanted another hummus recipe, and I have tried it with refined black beans, which turned out to be awesome. One clove of garlic, parsley, and some seasoning is almost everything you need to make a simple/cheap hummus dish look and be out of this world. Take some nachos and dip in and savour the moment after a busy day.
No more other words, as this simple dish is a big discovery, as for me, it really was.

What can I substitute for tahini in hummus?
When you make hummus at home, you will definitely add tahini to it. So, the question is, can I substitute tahini or replace it with other ingredients?
The answer is simple: yes, you can skip or replace it with anything.
For example, you can mix hummus with peanut butter, sesame seeds, sesame oil, greek yoghurt, avocado, dried tomatoes, nuts like cashew, almond, or walnuts and others.
Keep in mind that tahini will make your hummus dip creamier and smoothie, as well as will add more minerals and vitamins. So it is at your liking either to add, skip, or replace tahini sauce with anything you like.
