Black Bean Dip Recipe

Black Bean Dip

Here's an easy dip that makes a wholesome packed lunch: a little container of dip, along with a bag of tortilla or pita chips and some carrot sticks makes a nice change of pace from a sandwich.

by Catherine Newman

What you'll need

  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained well
  • Kosher salt, depending on the saltiness of your beans
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar (or lime juice)
  • 1 small clove garlic, pressed (remove the green shoot first, if there is one)

How to make it

  1. Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until very smooth, adding a tablespoon or two of hot water if the beans seem disinclined to become creamy.
  2. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips or whole-grain crackers, and raw veggies.
