Simple dinky black bean & sun dried tomato hummus

Here's a game changer for you all, black bean and sundried tomato hummus.

As a gym-goer, I am always keen to find quick, simple ways of feeding myself healthy, vegan snacks. The beauty of this hummus (asides the fact it is soooo easy to make and super-quick) is the fact that it is so versatile. Have it in a jacket potato (great post-workout meal), spread on toast, or slap it all over some salad.

Black bean health benefits

These dinky black beans are a high-protein, SUPER healthy & versatile food. Great for slow-release energy, black beans are a reliable source of fibre and folate – essential for good heart and brain function. This recipe is another of my simple, on-the-run & zero-time-to-spare recipes.

As I have snuck in here some miso paste - this is a fermented food which is gut healing too. I think of everything ;)

Here is the recipe for this energy-charged bowl of beans goodness...

I've added in my favourite smoked seaweed oil to give it a depth of flavour and subtle smokiness, it's optional but it won't taste quite the same without it!


1 tin black beans

6-8 sundried tomatoes

1 clove garlic

2 droppers full Doctor Seaweed's smoked sea weed oil (optional, but highly recommended - buy it here)

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp miso paste

1 small-medium avocado (flesh of)


- In a food processor, combine all the ingredients, blitz until you can bear the - blitzing noise no more,

- scoop out into pretty dish


Serve however you like - with potato wedges, salad, as a dip with toasted sourdough... mmmmmmmmmmm

Peace and dinky bean goodness,
