Beans are full of fiber, which will keep you feeling full longer, and an inexpensive source of protein.

1/4 cup soft silken tofu
1½ tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 small lime

Ground pepper, to taste
Sprinkle of ground paprika

Place the beans, garlic, tofu, tahini, cumin, oil, and lime juice in a food processor. Whirl until the mixture is smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve in a bowl, garnished with a sprinkle of paprika. Black Bean Hummus will keep for 4 to 5 days, tightly covered in the refrigerator.
