Making your own hummus is easy, economical, and fast if you have a food processor or blender. While making hummus from anything but chickpeas and tahinis might not technically be considered acceptable by hummus purists, the end result is delicious. Don’t confine yourself to black beans, either. Pinto or cannellini would also be excellent.

Tip: If you want to avoid dairy, leave the sour cream out and use 2 tablespoons of olive oil instead.


  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame tahini
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced tomato
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth.
