Black Bean Hummus

My black bean hummus recipe had to change up a lot when I decided to follow a controlled carbohydrate lifestyle some years ago. 

By substituting black soybeans I was able to snack on hummus once again!  Plus I’m getting more protein and a lot more fiber this way.

Let’s do a little comparison.

½ cup of Black Beans (Stokely) contains 100 calories, 0.5 grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 13 net grams of carbohydrates and 6 grams of protein.

½ cup of Black Soybeans (Eden Organic) contains 120 calories, 6 grams of fat, 8 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of fiber, 1 net gram of carbohydrates and 11 grams of protein.

So the black soybeans contain more fat, but the recipe doesn’t call for added fat where the original version did.  And I’m not lipo-phobic so for me this was a clear choice.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I enjoyed creating it for you...well I guess technically it was for me first really.
