  • 1 can black beans (or 1/2 cup dried, fully cooked)
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 Tbsp tamari
  • handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • pinch ground cayenne


  1. Rinse and drain the beans. If you are using dried beans in your healthy vegan recipes, they must be fully cooked before you begin. How To Cook Dried Beans
  2. Put the beans in a food processor (best choice) or blender (works ok), along with the lime zest & juice and the tamari, with about 1/4 cup of water. Blend until this is smooth, then blend in the fresh cilantro and spices. If your blender is not mixing things well at the consistency of your dip, simply transfer it to a bowl once the beans have been blended and stir in the spices instead.
