Spooky, sexy and inevitably chic, this all-black hummus from French blogger Eva Gaillot is the ultimate Halloween treat. Who needs candy when you have a gorgeous nutrient-dense condiment like this one to share?
The Paris-based vegan recipe developer and storyteller behind The French Coconut nailed a perfect balance of texture, flavor and X-factor with this simple black hummus. Serve some up at your next gathering with a side of veggie crudites, seed crackers or anything else your heart desires.
Pro tip: If you can’t find black tahini you can always make it yourself by blending 1 cup of black sesame seeds with 2 tablespoons of oil.
Serves 2 to 4
2 cups cooked chickpeas
4 Tbsp black sesame puree / black tahini
4 Tbsp cold-pressed organic olive oil
3 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp tamari
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
2 garlic cloves
juice of one lemon
pinch of chili powder (if you like it spicy)
salt + pepper to taste
Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Adjust seasoning to taste. Keep in fridge for a week, and enjoy with your favorite bread or carrot sticks to stick to the orange/black theme.
Tip: You can use activated charcoal powder to accentuate the dark black color.
