This whipped-style hummus is as smooth as silk–why? Because you’ll shell the chickpeas (or use pre-shelled chickpeas) before blending the ingredients together. It’s a little extra work, but it pays off majorly in the long run. Served with seedy crackers, pita chips, toasted bread or fresh vegetables for dipping, this mouth-watering black truffle hummus dip is the perfect party pleaser. Your friends will beg you for the recipe!
Natureul Black Truffle Spread really makes the difference between a so-so hummus and an out-of-this-world appetizer.

Once you try it on this dip, you’ll want to add it to every meal–and we won’t stop you!
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
Serves 3-4 people
- 1 16 oz can of chickpeas, shells removed
- ¼ cup aquafaba (reserved liquid from the canned chickpeas)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Natureul Black Truffle Spread, plus more for serving
- 2 tablespoons avocado or olive oil, plus more for serving
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons tahini sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender or food processor, stopping to scrape the sides down when necessary. Pulse until the ingredients are combined, then run on high power until the mixture becomes smooth.
- Using a rubber spatula, transfer the mixture into your serving bowl and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon to create wells.
- Drizzle extra oil into the wells you created and use the back of a spoon to add more black truffle sauce to garnish the hummus. Work from the center ring out and balance it on each side for even distribution when dipping.
- Serve with crackers, pita chips, and/or vegetables for dipping!
Tips for Making Black Truffle Hummus Dip
If you aren’t a big fan of sesame or you’re out of tahini, you can swap the tahini in this recipe for 2 tablespoons of Natureul Tigernut Spread in Original flavor. The flavor won’t change a ton, but instead of intense sesame flavor, you’ll get a much more mild, earthy tigernut undertone in this delicious hummus dip.
Shelling the chickpeas gives the hummus its exceptionally smooth texture, but if you’re in a hurry you can skip this step! It’ll add a little more fiber and just a hint of graininess to the hummus, but some people prefer it that way.
Make it spicy! Use the Chili Black Truffle Sauce instead of the original flavor to add a bit of heat to this savory hummus. It’s the perfect amount of kick–not too much and not too little–with the same rich truffle and mushroom flavor of the original sauce, perfect for spicing up this hummus. You can also intensify the flavor by adding more truffle sauce to the base of the hummus.
