If you like dips, hummus and all those kinds of things then you are going to go bonkers over this red bean and mint hummus.

Used precooked beans for a quicker recipe, or boil your own to avoid preservatives and extra salt.


  • 250 g cooked and drained red beans (one can)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground chili
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • water, as needed

In a blender place all ingredients minus the oil

While blending pour in 1 tbsp of oil and enough water to get the right consistency.

Pour it into a serving bow, drizzle the top with the remaining tbsp of oil and enjoy with my Keto Crackers or my Low-Carb Crackers or my Buckwheat and Crackers or my Yeast-free Crackers, you have got plenty of options 😉
