Black Bean Hummus / Carrot Hummus / Green Goddess
Everything we do at Cafe 21 is made from scratch and with love. Now let’s delve into what that really means. Transparency is important to us and so this series is all about understanding what really goes on in Nature’s Kitchen. How everything is really made and how what is on your plate is really a combination of creativity, mastery, as well as fresh and simple ingredients.
Our most inventive Chef Leyla is always trying to find that perfect balance in each recipe and what she creates is labor of love. Her mastery in innovation and creation is then executed through the hard work and dedication of the entire Cafe 21 kitchen staff. Yet none of this would really matter unless everything is made with the freshest ingredients.
Every time you walk through our doors our goal is that each guest is treated like a guest in our home, as such is the way of the culture of Azerbaijan. Not only will you leave with an experience of unforgettable tastes and flavors, but you know that your food is made from scratch and with love.
BLACK BEAN HUMMUS
Inspiration: Mexico and Southern California
Ingredients, flavors, and tastes are combined with the thought of Mexica and Southern California every step of the way. The black bean hummus is one of our MEZZE option and also happens to be one of the finishing touches to our gluten-free TACO PLATTER.

This MEZZE spread is much more festive, richer in taste and flavor. The magic behind all this are the confit carrots and garlic, meaning they are slowly cooked over a long period of time. And what’s so special about carrots, well they have their natural sweetness which really balances out the other ingredients in hummus. As far as we are concerned, it’s the perfect balance of ingredients.
