It makes a delicious snack and it would be a great healthy recipe to make for a Super Bowl party. A twist on classic hummus! This is Black Bean Hummus made with cilantro and lime and it is so yummy. Only 10 minutes to make and it is gluten-free and vegan.Like traditional chickpea hummus it has sesame tahini, olive oil and garlic. And it is pureed until it is nice and smooth. I drizzle oil over the top too. But that’s where the similarities kind of stop between this black bean hummus and regular traditional hummus. Instead of chickpeas, this hummus is made with black beans, obviously. I also added ground coriander seed, fresh cilantro and lime juice (instead of lemon.) And because Calivirgin sent me some, I used jalapeno infused olive oil to drizzle on the top.

I made baked tortilla chips to go with it instead of serving the traditional pita bread with it. But then once they were gone, the girls and I just used crackers to dip in it. That was pretty off the charts as well. I am betting it would make awesome tortilla roll-ups or vegetarian sandwich filling too. Heck even celery would be great dipped in it!

Ok gushing about the hummus over….Let’s talk about the Super Bowl for a sec. The Super Bowl can be kind of a pig out can’t it? I am cool with that, but I personally try to make sure that there are some healthy options on the table so I can eat mostly those, and then just sample the naughtier stuff in moderation. {Like making this black bean hummus with either whole-grain pitas, or home-made baked tortilla chips would be an easy 10 minute recipe to add to the mix. Oops, sorry I said I would stop.} I also make sure there are raw veggies and home-made dip too. I eat them, and the extra bonus is that so do my daughters. My kids only stay up until half-time, but they do watch the game with us until then. It always makes me so happy to see them eating all those veggies.


Which brings me to my Back to basics tip of the day.

Back to Basics

Take matters into your own hands! Over the holidays I went to a Christmas party and my friend Jess was there. She has lost a lot of weight over the last year. She is an inspiration! We were chatting and she said that she had intentionally eaten before she came to the party so she wouldn’t be tempted to eat the less healthy fare at the party. I think that is a great tip. And I would like to take it a step further to say bring something healthy to share that you do want to eat. That way you know there will be at least one thing there that you can snack on. And I bet there will be other people there who will be so glad to have a healthy option too. Try it for the Super Bowl in a few weeks.
