Black bean hummus that’s creamy, tangy, and flavourful. Easy to whip up, too! 


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans (or 1 14-oz can, drained and rinsed)
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin seed butter 
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp-3/4 tsp fine sea salt (to taste)
  • Chili flakes, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Big handful of fresh cilantro 


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process until smooth. 


You might think 1/3 cup of lime juice sounds like a lot. I love tangy, flavourful dips, so I found 1/3 cup to be perfect. However, feel free to use less if that’s what you prefer. 

If you don’t have any pumpkin seed butter, sunflower seed butter and tahini also work.
