Fermented Black Bean Dip is always a hit… especially when served with tortilla chips along-side a bowl of homemade guacamole.

One of the most popular uses of this bean paste is as a dip or in place of refried beans. This is a great recipe to learn as it opens up the use of beans in fermented foods. Can you imagine a delicious fermented hummus? Just use chickpeas (garbanzo beans) in place of the black beans… add a few extra spices, and there yo have it!

Because the beans were cooked, which they have to be, we will be adding a culture to get the fermenting process started. We will be using the homemade "live" whey that was obtained from our yogurt as shown in the lesson on whey.

Black beans are so good for your health.

  • They are packed with fiber and protein, so they can satisfy and provide you with energy for many hours.
  • When we add in, that they are a great source of fiber, antioxidants, iron and manganese, they become a food needed for a balanced diet.

Fermenting foods can enhance their taste. So beans don’t taste like plain old beans anymore.

Let me mention that this food is rich in probiotics with the nutrition unlocked. This recipe gives you another way to add this great food into your diet on a regular basis.
