I love this soooooooooooo much. I am eating it right now and realized it is vegan, so will share it here. It's got a bit of a kick to it.
It is adapted from http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Black-Bean ... etail.aspx
I believe my recipe is a quadrupling of the original (with some further adaptations as well).
What I do:
500 gram dried black beans, soaked 8-10 hrs; cooked to tender [2 hrs] [alternatively; 4-15 oz cans]; drain but reserve liquid
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup lemon juice
6 tbsps tahini
3 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp paprika
I add 1-3 tbsp coconut oil because I like fat
Blend. When I use my handheld Braun stick thing to blend it, it comes out 'fluffy', which is a treat.
[I skip the olives]
I scoop it with rice cakes. My kid eats it up in giant spoonfuls.
