Black tahini, miso & kimchi hummus

Black tahini, miso & kimchi hummus

by @hallefaraj 1 Comment

We were blown away when we saw this amazing black hummus, made with our Norfolk chickpeas, posted on Instagram by @hallefaraj and we're thrilled that she's happy for us to share it here.

@hallefaraj says, "Black tahini, miso and kimchi hummus, why? Because it’s iftar time, we’re in lockdown, and it’s #internationalhummusday"

"I used my very own bell pepper infused olive oil, crispy chickpeas, lemon and parsley marinated chickpeas oh and made some sourdough, my first semi-successful one, everything tasted so so good the umami-ness was deep and very Halle’esque"

"The umami flavours of this hummus gives a delicious depth, adding the kimchi lifts it to magical levels."

Serves 2-4

Ingredients

  • 250g Chickpeas
  • 2 x ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 tbsp Black Tahini
  • 1 tbsp Miso (or we suggest Fava Bean Umami Paste)
  • 4-5 tbsp Cold Water
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • salt and pepper to taste
Garnishes
  • 1 tbsp Kimchi
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • 2 tbsp whole Whole Cooked Chickpeas (optional)
Optional garnishes
Crispy chickpeas
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste
Marinated chickpeas
  • ¼ Lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 tsp Parsley, chopped

Method

  1. Wash the chickpeas and soak overnight in cold water with 1/4 tsp of baking soda.
  2. Drain, rinse and add them to a pan of water with a 1/4 tsp of baking soda, bring it to the boil, then simmer for 45 min-1 hour, or until tender and soft to touch.
  3. Drain the cooked chickpeas, reserving 2 tbsp for garnish.
  4. Place the bulk of the cooked chickpeas in a blender with the garlic and blend for 2 min, scraping the sides halfway through.
  5. Add the black tahini, miso, lemon juice and olive oil, and blend for a further 2 min or until smooth. Taste, and season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Serve with a generous drizzle of olive oil, the kimchi, and reserved whole chickpeas.
Optional Garnish preparation
  1. Preheat the oven to 200c. Toss 1 tbsp chickpeas in a olive oil, salt and roast for 20-30 min or until golden.
  2. With the remaining 1 tbsp of chickpeas, sprinkle lemon zest and squeeze over the lemon juice, and add 1 tsp of chopped parsley.

Wrinkled Pea Masala
Wrinkled Pea Masala

by Nick Saltmarsh

Inspired by Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chana Masala, this simple but satisfying recipe substitutes whole wrinkled peas for the usual chana or chickpeas. It's delicious with either (or just about any whole pulse) but the especially high resistant starch content of wrinkled peas provides more nourishment for your gut flora.
