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.

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.© Jim Catanich
"Wow, way too many ingredients for something so simple" - kim t.
"Delicious recipe! In a rush I was able to simmer for 45 mins and use some red wine that's been sitting in the cabinet. To make this healthier I used whole wheat thin spaghetti and no salt added cans except for the tomato paste." - zach g.
"Followed the recipe, and it was the best roast ever. I served it to four fiends, and they all wanted the recipe. We made sandwiches two days later and had the same results, best flavor for a sandwich from a pot roast ever." - glen r.
"The classic moist pumpkin bread from Down East is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. This bread improves with age, so plan to make it a day ahead if possible." - janiece mason
"Mouth-watering pork cooked in a slow cooker with beef broth served with barbecue sauce." - kathy
