Farmer's Market Peppers & Black Bean Hummus!
I LOVE the farmer's market in Nashville. The people are so nice, the booths are so quaint and beautiful, and the food is ah-mazing. I found these strange looking, colorful bell-peppers at one of the stands from a local organic farm. I also bought black bean hummus from The Hummus Chick. I taste-tested different hummus (her cilantro hummus was AWESOME), but alas, she was sold out of everything but the black-bean flavor.
To be honest, I found the black bean hummus to be just a teenie-tiny bit over-rated. This may just be because I am spoiled to have my family's recipe, which is flipping AWESOME and can't be beat. I decided to add a short recipe of my own rendition of her black bean hummus below:
- 1 cup canned garbanzo beans
- 1/2 cup canned black beans
- 1/2 cup tahini sauce
- 2/3 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons salt & pepper
- 2-3 twigs parsley for garnish
Directions: Blend beans together with tahini and water. Add lemon juice slowly and continue to blend. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with parsley and eat with colorful bell-pepper "chips." Yummy!
