Hello my Dearest Foodies,

I have a very easy, nonetheless, super tasty recipe for you today. Last week I decided to see how a hummus made of beans instead of chickpeas would taste like, so I made it using Black Eyed Beans. They are also called Black Eyed Peas, although, they look like beans to me and nothing like peas, lol. The main thing is that they taste very good and they are perfect for hummus. However, you can use also use Navy Beans or Chickpeas for this recipe and it will be just fine.


Black Eyed Bean Hummus with Roasted Red Beet

We are on the same wavelength this week Lena--I made a beet dip, too! I used white beans and tossed in some herbs from the garden, but otherwise I got to enjoy something very similar to this! You have definitely managed to make a quite beautiful spread as always. :)

Thank you so much Sweetie...........I like the idea of adding herbs from the garden ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ
