Spicy Black Bean Hummus

Another super easy bean dip, this one taken from Pop Sugar.

My modifications were as follows:

I’ve gotten really skeptical about putting raw garlic in things because I can’t seem to find any that’s actually fresh, so instead I used a garlic olive oil instead of plain olive oil, and that worked great.

I only had half a lemon – it would have been good with more, but it was fine this way.

I drained the beans but didn’t rinse them – does anyone know whether this is a good idea? I know bean soaking water is no good, but what about what’s in the can? Anyway, it tastes better if you keep the goopy can part, so I did.

I used cayenne (not jalapeño – they give both options)

I sprinkled parsley on top – so good and highly recommended!!
