Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 1/2 cups cooked black soybeans
or 1 can (15 ounces) organic black soybeans, drained (reserve liquid)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice -- (2 to 4)
2 tablespoons soybean cooking or canning liquid or water -- (2 to 3)
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini (sesame-seed paste)
1/2 teaspoon salt -- (1/2 to 3/4)
1/2 teaspoon harissa
or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground -- (1/2 to 1) cayenne pepper
Sweet paprika and oil-cured olives, for garnish
Mince the garlic in a food processor. Add the black soybeans and the minimum amounts of the remaining ingredients. Process to a fairly smooth paste, scraping down the sides of the work bowl as needed. Taste and blend in more of any ingredients required to give a smooth consistency and to suit your taste.
Makes about 1 1/4 cups.
Serve the hummus in a small bowl, garnished with a sprinkling of sweet paprika and a scattering of oil-cured olives. Set a basket of pita triangles on the side.
I often double the recipe so I can make a lunch of hummus and thick strips of roasted red pepper stuffed into a pita pocket.

"I baked this in an 8inch pan as someone suggested and had a major fail. I reduced the temp to 160 but I don't think it was reduced enough, rose so much in the middle and not at all on the outside. I'm going to give it a another go tonight as the flavour was pretty good!" - kjs0785
