Sweet & Spicy Black Bean Dip

October 15, 2013

A friend of mine gave me this recipe when I was in my first year of studying naturopathic medicine. I have modified it a little over the years so that it contains more nutrients. It is still delicious, and can be used as a dip for veggies, or crackers/pitas, it can be used as a spread for a sandwich or wrap when you are looking for a tasty meatless meal.

Sweet & Spicy Black Bean Dip


1½ cups cooked black beans or 1 can drained and rinsed
1/4 cup red onion, minced, or 2 Tbsp dried onion flakes
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp blackstrap molasses
1 Tbsp olive oil
pinch cayenne pepper
black pepper to taste
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced (optional) for garnish

Place garlic in blender or food processor and blend until minced. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Transfer to a glass jar or container for storage, and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Garnish with cilantro if desired before serving. Makes about 1½ cups.
