Everything goes better with garlic, but black garlic and hummus takes things to a whole new level.
Whether you spread it or dip it, pair it with bread and vegetables or just eat it straight off of a spoon, this recipe from Kaori in Miami will knock the socks off any grocery store hummus.
If you’re in Miami and looking for top-notch flavors, Kaori in Brickell is a go-to spot. Executive Chef Raymond Li blends Mediterranean and Asian flavors to create a whole new profile of taste and style, and this black garlic hummus recipe bridges that gap with mirin and ginger.
“The idea for the dish sprouted from when I first came on board with Kaori,” Li says. “We had limited amounts of garlic in-house, so I replaced the traditional garlic seen in hummus with black garlic we had lying around, and it was an instant moment of revelation. The dish was a hit. The addition of our house-made spiced pumpkin seed furikake for some texture, and the chili sesame oil for some heat was definitely the icing and the candle on the cake.”
Even if you can’t make it to Miami, you can still enjoy this breakthrough dip with the recipe below.
