Super Bowl Black Bean Dip (Vegan!)

I’ve got a super bowl party to go to tomorrow and was trying to think of some vegan dishes to bring. I happened to be making a pot of black beans and my husband turned them into the most amazing dip ever. Get ready to eat the best bean dip you’ve ever had in your life. Seriously. I can’t stop eating it! I’m eating it as I write this post. The best part is that it’s extremely easy to make. I’m normally not even a big bean dip fan…the term “bean dip” sounds kind of weird, like an insulting name a 4th grader would call the kid they’re picking on. “Shut up, bean dip!”

Or maybe I’m just going a little crazy. Anyhow, here’s the recipe to this fabulous dish!

1/2 pound of black beans 

1/4 bunch of cilantro

1/4 medium onion, diced

1/2 can tomato sauce

The juice of a whole lemon

2 tbs rice vinegar

1 tbs balsamic vinegar (Check out my favorite kind here. It’s seriously what makes the dish, among many others I’ve used it for)

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp basil

1/4 tsp turmeric

salt to taste

Cook and drain the black beans, make sure they’re in a large enough bowl (I just kept mine in the pot I cooked them in). Add all other ingredients to the black beans and stir. Put the seasoned black bean mixture into a food processor or blender (I used my Vitamix). Blend until you reach a creamy consistency.

Voila! Serve this dish with tortilla chips or your favorite cracker. I also think it would make a wonderful spread on sandwiches and wraps.

Happy Super Bowl! 🙂
