Simple Black Hummus recipe by Transylvania's Finest Food:


What is umami taste?

  • the umami taste is known as the 5th taste after sweet, sour, bitter, salty;
  • umami - is a word taken from Japanese - and can be translated as "delicious taste" or "taste of the gods"
  • besides black garlic, the taste of umami can also be enjoyed in soy sauce, clams, oysters, green tea, seaweed, sardines, certain types of cheese...
  • due to the high amount of amino acids, the umami taste can highlight other tastes; this is why a dish containing the taste of umami is ideally served - before the main course - as an appetizer;
  • since umami makes other tastes stronger, large amounts of salt or sugar are no longer needed, the diets of sick people or children thus become healthier.

Benefits of black garlic

🧄 black garlic - well-known for its umami taste that is increasingly found in gastronomy and alternative medicine - has the consistency of soft caramel, a sweet taste and can be eaten directly, as a snack;

🧄 black garlic contains double the amount of antioxidants compared to white garlic and has miraculous effects on the body;

🧄 among others, black garlic reduces bad cholesterol, but also the occurrence of some types of cancer;

🧄 the body absorbs the nutrients contained in black garlic much more easily, which makes it easier to digest than white garlic;

🧄 black garlic does not have a specific smell, so it does not change the body odor after consumption, so it can be consumed at any time and by anyone;

🧄 besides the special role it has in the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system, black garlic has a strong antibiotic effect, strengthens the immune and bone systems, helps heal wounds, lowers blood pressure, regulates intestinal transit, facilitates digestion

🧄 in Transylvania's Finest Food recipes we use black garlic - a 100% natural product - obtained from unmodified or chemically altered white garlic - processed at a certain temperature and humidity right in our @Ganesti complex.


    Simple Black Hummus recipe by Transylvania's Finest Food:


    Trick 1: to enhance the flavor of the beans, try the following trick: fry the beans in the pan until they change color a little. Then prepare it according to the known method (soak it - at least 12 hours - rinse it, then boil it...)


    For this recipe we need:

    200 g of boiled beans

    100 g of tahini

    30 ml agurida or lemon juice

    50 ml of walnut oil

    1 clove of white garlic

    7 cloves of black garlic

    the water

    salt, cumin, walnut kernel


    Put the boiled beans in a container, put it in the blender, add the white garlic, 5 cloves of black garlic, salt, cumin, tahini, sour cream or lemon juice, a little walnut oil, use the blender again - add water depending on desired consistency; and check for salt and pepper.

    Place the chickpeas on the plate in the shape of a pyramid - which we flatten - decorate with broken or roughly cut walnut kernels, add a little walnut oil; and the 2 (remaining) cloves of black garlic - cut into pieces.

    Simple and tasty!


    Trick 2: tahini paste can be successfully replaced with walnut paste.
