Black Bean Hummus with Tahini

I made this as a quick fix when I realized I had no garbanzo beans in the pantry! It is a creamier variation on traditional Middle Eastern hummus using black beans instead of garbanzo beans. Serve with bread or tortilla chips.

Original recipe makes 2 1/2 cups


1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup tahini paste
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon olive oil, for drizzling
