Vegan “Cheesy” Black Bean Hummus a.k.a. Don’t Be Fooled By The Colour… It’s Delish!

If you don’t know, now you know… I absolutely LOVE black beans!!! And if you haven’t already guessed… they’re the main event in this dip! It’s so thick & creamy, full of antioxidants, fibre & protein & SO versatile! Spread it on your fave rice cakes or toast, use it as a topping on bowls or lettuce wraps or dip some crunchy veggies in it!

What else is in it?!

  • raw unsalted almonds
  • mixed greens
  • nutritional yeast
  • cayenne
  • minced garlic
  • lemon
  • apple cider vinegar
  • raw Dijon
  • shallots


  • 1 can organic low-sodium or no-salt added black beans
  • 1 tbsp. raw unsalted almonds
  • A heaping handful of mixed greens
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • Juice from one lemon
  • 2 tbsp. raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. raw organic Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 medium shallot, diced
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste


  • Add all the ingredients to your blender jug (except the minced garlic)IMG_0115.JPG & blend until combined & incorporated. The hummus should be thick & creamy and have the texture of actual hummus.
    • If it’s too thick, thin it out by adding more apple cider vinegar or filtered water, one tbsp. at a time.
    • If it’s too thin, add more nutritional yeast or almonds to thicken it, one tbsp. at a time.




  • Mix in the minced garlic & store in an airtight container & refrigerate.



If you’re wondering or needing some inspo for how to devour this delicious hummus, here’s what I had for lunch yesterday… AND YES, IT’S A BOWL. Seriously though, a bowl of what I like to call “goods” (a.k.a. wholesome nutritious foods) is the best way to pack everything your body needs into a fresh, crispy, delicious one-bowl meal (which also means… less dishes!).

Here’s what’s in it…

  • 1/2 avocado drizzled with nutritional yeast
  • roasted carrots
  • homemade black bean vegan “cheesy” hummus
  • heart of palm
  • cherry tomatoes
  • roasted sweet potatoes


And yes, in case you’re wondering, most of this bowl was made possible in part thanks to MEAL PREP! If you want to know more about why I swear by it, search “KITK’s guide to meal prep” on the blog!
