Challenge accepted (in 2 courses). Black bean and sesame hummus appetizer and wheat pasta with oregano carrot hot sauce entree, both recipes courtesy of Lady and Pups with slight modifications by the P(ea)s.
Can we all just take a moment and appreciate the color of this black hummus? This is in thanks to black sesame, white sesame’s dark, broody and slightly bitter cousin. If Kylo Ren was a food, this would be it. I wish I was eating this right now.
The wheat pasta turned down the brightness of the orange color but dd not dial back the warm, spicy and mildly sweet flavor of the sauce. I think the brilliance of this sauce is that the carrot itself is sweet but add in anchovies and chilies and it’s perfectly balanced.
Oh and cheese. Cheese balances everything out.
