Black Bean Hummus Recipe ~ How to make Hummus (Quick and Easy)

Black Bean Hummus Recipe, quick and easy and health. But the best part is it taste amazing #Healthy #Recipe #Hummus #HowToMakeHummus

Two weeks ago I made a trip to the Smuckers headquarters in Ohio. It was an amazing trip filled with learning and great tips.  One of the sessions I went to was focused on recipe that you can make ahead of time for a Holiday Party. I was excited that I got to make the Black Bean Hummus recipe, my family loves hummus but I have never made it before.

My cooking partner was Heather with Whipperberry, she is awesome in the kitchen so I was pretty lucky to have her as my partner.  But what really made me smile was HOW EASY the recipe was and how good it tasted.  This is a keeper for sure, I can’t wait to make it for my family.

  1. LOL ok… well some of you don’t like the photo. There is not really a way to make hummus look good… but it sure does taste good

  2. I love this recipe but I think I would have to add some sort of food coloring to it!

  3. I’ve tried it before and loved it! Next on my list to try is pumpkin hummus!
