Sprouted Black Bean & Jalapeno Dip

Rich and silky smooth with just a hint of spice, you’ll definitely wonder where this sprouted black bean dip has been all your life! This 5 minute, no fail recipe is made with simple ingredients and packed with protein and fibre. Sprouting black beans improves their digestibility, reduces cook time, eliminates the need for pre-soaking and enhances their taste and texture.

You can completely control the level of spice by adding more or less jalapeno seeds, simply taste as you go and adjust. If you prefer it mild, you can leave out the seeds entirely. If you want it extra spicy, try adding a dash of cayenne or hot sauce. It’s also very easy to customize the recipe for your texture preference by using more/less liquid and blending time.

The key to the smooth texture shown in the photo is making sure that the sprouted beans are fully cooked. This may seem obvious, but even slightly undercooked beans can really alter the texture (you’ll get harder bits in the dip). You can check this by splitting open a few beans and seeing if there is any white starch left in the center. If in doubt, overcooked beans work well for the dip too. 

This recipe is also a great way to use up any leftover beans (yay for no waste!), just make sure they are fully cooked and you may need to add a little bit of extra liquid if they have been sitting in the fridge. This sprouted black bean dip recipe is sure to be a hit on any snack table!
