Quick, easy, tasty, & healthy...this dip meets all my major snack food requirements!
You can make this dip in a food processor or a strong blender.
You can make it ahead of time or right at the time of your snack-attack.
Black Bean Dip
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
the juice of one lemon
2 Tbls. fresh parsley or cilantro, minced (pick the one that best suits your taste)
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
a sprinkle of red pepper flakes
2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
Pulse all ingredients except olive oil in your food processor or blender until combined.
Then stream in the olive oil until the desired texture. I like to leave a few chunks of black beans but you may prefer a smoother dip.
Serve with fresh veggies or whole grain crackers.
