This is an interesting variation on hummus, which is traditionally made with garbanzo beans. When you're looking for a healthy snack or a bean dip with some character, give this recipe a try.


  • 1 - 15 oz. can black beans
  • 1 small jar marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons sea salt

  2. Serve with vegetables, whole wheat pita chips or tortilla chips.
