Real Food Monday – Black Bean Hummus

I took today off from work as I was out of town last weekend, and I just wanted that extra day to get settled back and ready for my week. So today I did all the main cooking for my lunches and for our dinners for the week. No pictures this time. Here’s what I made:

Sweet Potatoes au Gratin
Sauteed Corn, Peppers, Onion, and fresh Black-eyed Peas (with tarragon – yum!)
Braised Leeks and Mustard Greens
Broiled Eggplant

I also roasted garlic and made Black Bean Hummus, which I use for snacks that I take to work. Here’s the recipe (the lime juice REALLY makes this!):

Black Bean Hummus

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
½ Tablespoon chopped garlic (or several cloves roasted garlic)
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp paprika
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon tahini
1 Tablespoon lime juice

Put everything together in a food processor and blend until smooth.
