Black Bean Hummus

I love the flavor of hummus because it literally goes with anything that you want to dip in it. It makes me feel super healthy while I’m eating it, too!

I don’t feel nearly as bad if I want to dip chips in this because I know that the black beans are loaded with healthy nutrients.

  • Make certain to save the liquid from the black beans as you might need to add in a little bit as you’re using the food processor.
  • I like to chill this dip for a couple of hours before eating it.


How to store leftover hummus

All you need to do is store it in the fridge in a container with a lid. Keep it air tight to keep it fresh.

How to serve hummus

Now that you know how to make hummus, it’s simple to serve. Just add to a fun serving bowl and serve with chips or cut up veggies.

Can you freeze hummus?

You can but I’ve never actually done it. I tend to prefer it fresh and it never lasts long in my house. If you do freeze it just be certain to use a freezer-safe container.
