Good morning bloggers (and blog readers!) Happy Wednesday! I am so glad this week is almost halfway over because for some reason I am just TIRED. I missed out on some sleep this weekend because I stayed up late and woke up early. I just cannot sleep past 8, I’m usually up around 7-7:30 even when I can sleep in. Even if I try really hard and lay there, by 8, I am awake. I’m just genetically supposed to be a morning person, my mom is like that also. Up and at ’em early, even when I don’t want to be. That’s where my 3 cups of coffee come in.
1 (15 ounce) can black beans; drain and rinse
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon tahini
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 tbsp olive oil
4 black olives (optional) Instructions:
1. Add black beans,olive oil, lemon juice, tahini, olives, cumin, salt, paprika and cayenne pepper; process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
2. Pour in 1/4 cup of water to start, adding slowly. Check hummus when you have added half of the 1/4 cup to see if you need to add more liquid to make it thinner. If you need to make it thinner add the remainder of the water.
3. Add salt as needed.
