Already low-carb by nature, it can be made super-low carb by using black soy beans, but many low-carb diets include some other beans as well in case black soy beans aren't your cup of tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14-ounce) can black soy beans (or other beans on the low-carb diet plan you are following)
  • 4 ounces any fat level cream cheese, left out of the fridge for half an hour for better blending
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup medium-spicy salsa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Into a food processor work bowl, place 1 (14-ounce) can black soy beans or other bean on your diet plan, 4 ounces room-temperature cream cheese (full-fat, low-fat or fat-free all work), 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 cup medium-spicy salsa, 1/2 teaspoon salt.
     
  2. Place the top on the food processor and run until a smoothy consistency forms. Remove from food processor work bowl and transfer to a pretty serving dish. Serve at room temperature. Refrigerate any leftovers.

    What Are Black Soy Beans?

    Black soy beans are just a variety of regular yellow soy beans, although they are higher in some phytonutrients, including antioxidants. They are in net carbohydrates, and high in fiber, protein, vitamin K, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, and riboflavin.

    A 1/2-cup serving of black soy beans has 1 gram net carb plus 7 grams of fiber (8 grams of total carbohydrate), 11 grams of protein and 120 calories.

    Black soy beans are great substitutes for higher-carb beans and don't taste "soybean-y" as the yellow ones do, but more like regular black beans

    Fiesta!

    If you're thinking of throwing a low-carb Mexican-style party, these recipes won't disappoint.

    • Low-Carb Nachos Recipe: The toppings for traditional nachos recipes are low-carb, but it's the base that can kill you. Tortilla chips can ruin your carb count in a few bites. Alternatives include oven-baked cheese crisps, veggie chips, fried tofu, low-carb tortillas and pork rinds.
