High Protein Black Bean Spread

Healthy food can most definitely taste as delicious as or better than all the unhealthy crap lining the shelves at the grocery store.

Enough Said! The high level of magnesium in black beans is just fantastic – magnesium is critical for so many different areas of our bodies – including bone integrity, energy production and nervous system balance.




  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger, fresh (1 inch = 2.5 cm)
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (1 can = 15.5 oz = 435g) ( PC Blue Menu)
  • 1 tbps olive oil 
  • 1/2 jalapeno, chopped
  • ½ lime, juiced (maybe a little more)


  1. Grate or chop the garlic and ginger and jalapeno . Then fry both in oil on a medium heat and in a large saucepan for a minute or two.
  2. Drain and rinse the beans, then add them to the pan.
  3. Fry for a couple more minutes, adding a couple of tablespoons of water
  4. Remove from the heat, add the salt, pepper and lime juice.
  5. Use a potato masher or even fork to mash it all up into a smooth paste.
  6. Add it to bread, potatoes a salad or as a dip for veggies and crackers

Spread it, Eat it, Dip it and Enjoy it 🙂
