Homemade black bean and chickpea hummus I
The hummus is homemade, my first attempt at making it. I took two different recipes I found and combined bits of each of them to come up with my own. The only thing I would do differently next time is I would probably blend it for longer to make it really smooth.
Recipe for Black Bean and Chickpea (Garbanzo Bean) Hummus
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans,) drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 Tbs. tahini (sesame paste)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
15 grinds of black pepper
1 tsp. allspice
2 cloves of garlic (fairly large cloves)
2 1/2 Tbs. flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped (no stems)
juice from 1/2 a lemon
juice from 1 lime
Put all the ingredients in the food processor, and mix until smooth.
A blender would work as well, it will just take a bit longer, and you'll have to stir the ingredients a bit to get it all blended properly.
