Spooky Black Bean Hummus

This hummus is made from black beans rather than chickpeas, giving it the thematic and spooky dark lavender color perfect for the season. Add a creepy touch with a spider and web design.

-1 can black beans
-1 T tahini
-4 T lemon juice
-1 t garlic
-1/2 t cumin
-1/2 t salt

Blend all ingredients, adding additional liquid as needed. Serve in a dipping bowl, and get creative with a spider and web. I tried a number of different ingredients, from corn starch to flour, to make it look good and stay in form, I settled on a fried egg-white web with an olive and yolk spider. Note the red sugar crystals placed on the head with tweezers - have fun with it! Alternatively, you could hard boil and slice an egg for a floating "eye."

The hummus was alright, it mainly gets value for its unusual and thematic color. Go ahead and experiment with adding hot pepper or anything else you like to liven the dish up or make it something for friends and family to truly fear.
