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.
