These little bites are petite, but pack a savory punch. I was wanted to make something that I could snack on while mobile. I was inspired by this falafel recipe. So, technically these are just small falafel patties, but hummus bites sound way cuter.

 

Black Bean Hummus Bites

 

  • 2 Cups of fresh parsley
  • 1 can of black beans drained
  • 3 Tablespoons of minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of flour*
  • Juice of 1 big-ass lemon
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of dill
  • ½ teaspoon of salt and pepper

 

* chickpea, brown rice , or wheat all will work fine. For a high protein version I used plain brown rice protein instead.

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Add parsley and black beans to a blender.
  3. Pule a few times, all the mixture to still be very chunky.
  4. Add in remaining ingredients and blend until mixed. You may need to stop occasionally and scrape some of the mixture off the sides with a spatula.
  5. Shape into 8 little bite sized patties and place on a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for about 20 min, flip, and then bake for another 15-20 min.

Yeah... me and my lunch are pretty cute.

Little bites of lemony goodness!
