This is absolutely the best hummous I have ever had. It is great with toasted pitta bread. Add more lemon juice if the houmous tastes like it needs a lift.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 400g tin black beans
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 10 Greek olives

Preparation:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

  1. Place all of the ingredients except for the olives in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. Add additional seasoning and liquid to taste. Garnish with paprika and Greek olives.


Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.
