I felt like something a little bit different with my fresh veggies and this tangy black bean dip was the perfect addition of protein to fill me up with a subtle spicy kick.
I love having healthy snacking foods ready to go in the fridge. It makes things so much easier on me, especially if I am having a bad day health wise.
This recipe is super simple as well and keeps well in the fridge.
1 can Organic black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp avocado oil
Juice of 1 lime
2 garlic cloves, minced, and sautéed until fragrant
Fresh cilantro, handful
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Sea salt, pepper to taste
FIRST, PREP ALL INGREDIENTS: RINSE BEANS, CHOP, ETC.
SAUTEE CHOPPED GARLIC IN A TINY BIT OF THE AVOCADO OIL UNTIL FRAGRANT.
ADD ALL INGREDIENTS TO YOUR FOOD PROCESSOR OR VITAMIX.
BLEND OR PULSE SLOWLY, A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME UNTIL A SMOOTH TEXTURE IS ACHIEVED.
(ADD 1 TBSP OF WATER AT A TIME IF THE MIXTURE IS TOO THICK AND WON’T MOVE-I ENDED UP USING 4 TBSP OF WATER)
ONCE SMOOTH, TRANSFER TO AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER, AND REFRIGERATE FOR AT LEAST ONE HOUR BEFORE SERVING.
SERVE WITH YOUR CHOICE OF VEGGIE/CORN CHIPS, CUT UP FRESH VEGGIES, USE ON A SANDWICH, ETC.
I USED SOME FRESH BELL PEPPER, CELERY AND ORGANIC MULTI COLOURED CARROTS 🙂
I hope you enjoy this protein rich snack!!!
