Gazpacho Hummus with Vegetables and Hummus

Well, I am sure that you know by now that I am on a quest to make as many variety of delicious hummus as my brain and taste bud can.  I made orange hummus by using sweet potato, I made green one by using avocado.  I used yellow beet for one recipe and red beet for burgundy hummus and cannellini bean for a white hummus.  Black hummus still still elude me.  I used black beans with coco powder and that did not work.  It tasted like soil.  So I tried black beans with squid ink.  The mixture never looked like proper spread.  It looked like liquid cement and it smelled so bad that I had to dump the spread into trash bag and took it out to the dumpster right away.After couple days of resting my taste bud I moved on to new recipe.  The recipe came to me while I am enjoying of bowl of gazpacho.  I thought why not mix hummus with some vegetables and see what happened.I pureed half of the garbanzo bean into coarse mixture in order to add more texture.   And then, I pureed the rest of garbanzo beans into smooth paste.I Added tahini, garlic,  lemon, vegetables and salt.  Now I have have great vegan and gluten free hummus.
