I've been experimenting with throwing different things into my basic hummus recipe to see what works. When Obis One gave me some of their fermented organic black garlic on my visit, I knew that I wanted to use it in hummus.
After making my own tahini the other day, I decided it was time to give it a try. I had some slow cooker caramelized onions in the refrigerator and thought they'd work well. They did, but when it was done, I realized I needed to add something to balance out the sweetness of the black garlic and caramelized onions. Smoked paprika did the trick.
