Black Bean Spread

This is an easy spread that has a lot of flavor. We have it for breakfast on bread, topped with cucumber, lettuce, or red bell pepper.

Black Bean Spread on a Sandwich

What I used for the spread:

  • 380 g or 1 pack of black beans in brine, rinsed (about 3 dl cooked beans)
  • 100 g cashew nuts
  • 1/2 dl water
  • 4 sun dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Sambal Oelek chili paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoke salt (or salt and a few drops of liquid smoke, which I’ve bought at Behnford’s in Helsinki)

I toasted the cashews on dry frying pan until a little browned. This releases flavor, and toasted nuts don’t cause allergic reactions to me like raw nuts do. Then I crushed them in a blender with the water, until they were smooth and buttery. Now I added the rest of the ingredients and mixed until the spread was smooth – very easy and very delicious.
