Low Fat Black Bean Hummus

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by AnnieLynne

Passed down from the girls at the gym. I LOVE this with carrots or homemade pita chips. "Cook Time" is actually chill time. Hope you like it!

As it was (with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper) this hummus was rather bland, even after allowing it to meld overnight. After I was more liberal with the salt and added about a tbs of hot sauce for just a bit of a wakeup, it was tasty. Not sure I'll make it again, but it's nice to have such a healthy, protein-filled hummus recipe around. Thanks for posting!
