The silky texture and satisfying rich taste of Black Gold Black Bean Hummus make this protein-packed dip an everyday snacking option — as well as a great party appetizer! Texas Black Gold Garlic lends complex, caramelized flavors without the bite of raw garlic. Black beans bring a good source of protein and fiber to the party, while avocado offers brain healthy omega-3 fats and magnesium. Black Gold Garlic is a mellow, sweet source of S-Allyl cysteine, which is thought to have antioxidant benefits.

Preparation

  2. Add the reserved beans, flesh of the avocado, cilantro, roasted red pepper and half the green onions. Process to combine leaving a hint of green leaves and bits of red pepper visibly peeking thru. Taste to check if hummus needs additional salt or black pepper.
