For the Black Garlic Hummus

  • 400g can chickpeas, drained

  • 3–4 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed

  • ⅔ tsp ground cumin

  • 1 clove white garlic, minced

  • 6–8 tbsp cold water

  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tbsp tahini

  • 30g The Original Black Garlic cloves, or more to taste

  • salt, to taste

Vegan yoghurt layer

  • 250ml vegan yoghurt, Greek style or vegan sour cream

  • Taco seasoning, to taste (optional)

​​

Smashed Avocado Layer

  • 3 avocados, smashed

  • juice of 1 lime

  • salt, to taste

​​

Salsa Layer

  • 2 tomatoes, chopped

  • 1 red pepper, chopped

  • 60g chopped olives (pitted)

  • 1 jalapeno pepper or chilli pepper (seeds removed for less heat if desired), finely chopped

  • 3 tbsp spring onions, chives and or/micro-greens, chopped

  • Sprinkling of chilli flakes (optional)

to make 

 

  • Place all Black Garlic Hummus ingredients in a food processor and whizz it up to a creamy consistency. This might take several goes. Season to taste with salt and more lemon juice and add a bit more of olive oil or water if you want it to be a bit looser.

  • Spread the hummus on the bottom of a serving dish (Use a transparent one, which will display all the layers nicely.)

  • Top the hummus layer with yoghurt.

  • In a separate bowl, combine avocado with lime juice and season to taste with salt. When you’re happy with it, transfer it over the yoghurt layer.

  • Now mix all the salsa ingredients together, season with little salt and spread over the avocado. Top up with black garlic cloves.

  • It is really useful to provide your guests with small bowls or plates and a serving spoon to dip through all the layers.
