So what are we waiting for? Let’s make this dip.

- ¼ cup of water
- 1/2 an organic onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 3/4 organic jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
- Juice from 1.5 limes
- 1 tablespoon Perfect Press® Black Cumin oil
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed chilis
- 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

How to Make:
Combine beans, black cumin oil and water in food processor and blend until smooth.
Stop blending and add all other ingredients (except ricotta) into food processor and continue blending until smooth.
If you’re eating a vegan diet, stop right there! If you eat dairy, this is the time to add in your ricotta cheese and blend again.
Scoop the black bean dip in a bowl and garnish, if desired. Serve with tortilla chips and/or cut up vegetables.
We love this dip because we sneak in the health benefits of black cumin oil while adding its great flavor to make the dip taste even better.

The Activation solution…
There are lots of black cumin seed oil products in the marketplace, but they aren’t all organic and the oils aren’t always extracted in such a way that they’ll be beneficial for your health.
You want an oil that is made without GMOs, that has all its nutrients intact and that won’t go rancid even if it’s not stored in the fridge. Most oils out there are severely damaged by the pressing process, even ‘cold-pressed’ ones.
Here at Activation Products, we offer the highest-quality black cumin seed oil on the market. We don’t cut corners. You’ll feel amazing after consuming our oil regularly. There’s really nothing else out there like Perfect Press Black Cumin Seed Oil.
