Goodhealthgourmet's Black Bean Dip

Just a shoutout to GHG for her delicious recipe for black bean dip. I love it so much that I've actually made it three times the past week!

If you haven't tried it, you really should. It's healthy, easy and so tasty. I used Total 2% yogurt. And in one version I roasted the cumin seeds before grinding them to make it smokier.

            the recipe amyzan posted on that same page sounds great as well.

            and the recipe from Real Food Daily in Los Angeles is always a hit:

              ohhhhhhh. drat! I can see another 'addiction' coming my way here....darn you,GHG!!! The only ingredient I'm unfamiliar with is the umeboshi paste...what is it? Can it be purchased at an Asian food store? This sounds SO lentils!

                Val, you're too much :)

                umeboshi paste is made from pickled, preserved plums. you can find it either at an Asian grocery store or at WFM in the section with the Asian ingredients & packaged seaweed.

                GHG - I made your's fantastic! My kids inhaled it which means it's a win in my house.

                Thanks so much for the recipe.

          2. I make one very similar, but admit, with the yogurt and a few other ingredients ... it was very good.

            Excellent recipe.

            1. GHG black bean dip is truly addictive! Do try it if you haven't.

              Another GHG recipe I tried this weekend was, "GHG's LEMON-TAHINI SAUCE"


              This is another keeper! Thanks GHG

              1. Yes!!
