Creamy Vegan Black Bean Dip

Black bean dip is the perfect spicy, creamy dip that is incredibly satisfying.  It is naturally dairy-free and full of healthy ingredients.  Black beans are considered a legume and part of both the protein and vegetable group.  They also provide dietary fiber and important nutrients such as iron and zinc.  I love their texture when pureed and they absorb flavor well.  

This zesty dip is perfect for serving with raw veggies or chips.  It can even be used as a healthy spread for your sandwich or wrap.
