Here is How to Make Black Bean Hummus
A lot of people miss out on the greatness of hummus. For instance, the taste pairs with pretty much anything (crackers, chips, on sandwiches!), can be almost any flavor you would like and it is one delightful snack on those very warm summer days.
When those incredibly warm summer days start to roll in, most immediately turn to fruit for a refreshing snack…great! But, don’t forget to get those veggies in too! My favorite warm summer day snack is a plate full of sliced veggies and a big bowl of healthy hummus to dip it in. My top choice for a base, black bean! Next time you are craving that refreshing snack to cool you down, give this black bean hummus a try…. it takes 5 minutes, honest! And, I promise you will be refreshed:
