I started playing around with hummus recipes and rather than make three separate posts, I decided to combine them into one. So today we’re making Vegan Hummus Three Ways!
First, a traditional recipe which I then use to transform it into a carrot hummus. Lastly, a delicious black bean hummus. All are incredibly simple, so let’s get started!
I started with the basic hummus which you are probably familiar with. It consists of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, a bit of oil, seasonings such as paprika and optional toasted pine nuts. I omitted them because they aren’t my favorite and it really didn’t need it.
I drizzle a little olive oil over top and garnish with parsley. But I didn’t stop there…
To that hummus base, I added cooked carrots and ginger.
Puree until smooth, top with olive oil, freshly cracked black pepper, slivered almonds and carrot shreds. Fresh parsley for garnish.
Last, but certainly not least was this black bean hummus. In this hummus, I replaced the chickpeas in the original recipe with black beans. Instead of lemon juice, I used lime juice. Something a little different, I used a splash of red wine vinegar. Process until smooth and top with black beans, red onion, vegan goat cheese (optional) and of course, garnish with fresh parsley.
