Black Bean Dip with Veggies

1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Cumin, powdered
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp. Red Pepper, powdered (optional)

Place all the ingredients in a blender and run at "high" until smooth.  It may be necessary to stop the blender from time to time, and mix the ingredients with a spoon or spatula to ensure that all the ingredients are thoroughly and uniformly mixed.  (The amount of seasoning is often subjective; so, we suggest you taste a little and add additional seasoning if necessary.)  When finished, scoop out the bean dip into a bowl and place it in the center of a large platter.  (To enlarge the photo of the black bean dip, click on the photo or link)

Cut the veggies into 2" lengths and split as necessary to keep bite sized.  We suggest broccoli florets, carrots, cauliflower florets, celery, cucumbers, green and red bell peppers, scallions, etc.  Arrange the veggies around the dip on the platter in two piles for each variety of veggie, so that they are opposite each other.  This way everyone sitting around the table can reach some of each.  Enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
