Black Bean Dip (Dairy Free & Vegan)

Black Bean Dip (Dairy Free & Vegan)

If you have been following me for awhile, you may know I have a slight addiction to hummus. OK, a big one. I LOVE the stuff! I have passed on my addiction to my family. In fact, just today, I posted on Facebook about my 2 year old who took all of the hummus dip and carrots out of the refrigerator to chow down on them when no one was looking. No complaints here!

But as much as I love hummus, today, I was in the mood for something a little different. A snack that was still tasty (thus, allowing my kids to eat their veggies without complaining), but a new type of dip. I eyed my just cooked black beans and food processor and a new dip was created. And the dip is already long gone. A new batch will be in the works tomorrow.

Homemade Italian Dressing (Vegan)

This dressing is scrumptious and very rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Hemp oil is an excellent source of Vitamin E.  We poured this dressing over a large salad this evening and it made a delicious dinner.

Add to bowl:
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup hemp oil
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Herbamare
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
5 cranks fresh pepper

Whisk ingredients together. Pour dressing into a glass container with a lid and refrigerate.
