On this day after the election, whether “your man” won or lost, it might be time to pass a little bean dip.
But, if you’re going to protect your boundaries by offering bean dip, you should have some bean dip, right? So, here’s our favorite, super-easy bean dip recipe. We alternate this with Perfect Hummus and pack it in lunch boxes as well as pass it around to protect boundaries.
Black Bean Dip
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
4 teaspoons tomato paste
3 Tablespoons water
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 lime1/2 teaspoon ground cumin~ 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste~ 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste
So, I zest the lime and squeeze about 2 teaspoons into my blender. Then I toss all the other ingredients in and give it a whirl. That’s it. Super-easy.
