Vegan Cannellini bean coconut hummus

This is probably the best hummus I have ever made. Are you bored of chickpea hummus? This is what you need for a change 🙂 With coconut in, it tasted divine. Get rid of coconut if you are not into coconut 🙂

Black-eyed bean hummus

I wanted to eat hummus so bad I checked my pantry for a can of chickpeas. No luck. 😦  I usually boil one type of legume every 2 days for my protein intake (healthier than tofu). Today was black-eyed beans. Made hummus with it. Taste was AMAZING 🙂

All you need are

  • half a cup of cooked black-eyed beans
  • a heaped tsp of unhulled tahini
  • few drops of lemon juice (I love lemony taste-I usually add bit of lemon zest)
  • a clove of garlic
  • a pinch of paprika
  • a pinch of cumin seeds
  • salt-to taste
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Blend them all together drizzle with olive oil and serve with mountain bread 🙂

Do you crave chips? This is the best way to satisfy your craving. Tear mountain bread into bits and microwave for a min. Yummy chips. If you use corn mountain bread, add some vegan cheese on top, that’s your nachos. If you live in Australia, you could get mountain bread at Coles/Woolworths
