Black Bean Dip

Here’s a fairly mild dip that provides protein and fiber. Serve with corn chips, carrot sticks or bell pepper strips. You can also use it as a sandwich spread. Also, it's best made with lime juice, but lemon juice works in a pinch.

Black Bean Dip

1 small garlic clove
1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup tomato juice or V-8 juice

In a blender or food processor with the machine running, add garlic. Stop machine and add black beans, lime juice, cumin, salt and juice. Process until smooth.

Yum! After five months on this diet, cooking some rather bland meals along the way, this tastes amazing. I used v8.
