Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:8 minutes
Total Time:23 minutes
Yield:3 servings 1x
For the Caramelized Onions:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium sweet (or white) onion, diced
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
For the Hummus:
1 (15oz) can Garbonzo Beans (Chick Peas), drained and rinsed
1 tbsp Tahini Paste (usually found in the international isle, or near the peanut butters)
1 clove garlic, pressed
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup olive oil, plus more if needed
Start by caramelizing your onions. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat. Toss in your diced onions and let them cook, stirring often, until they become soft and turn a light golden brown (about 5 minutes). Add the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar and stir to combine, letting the onions become coated with the mixture. Cook for an addition 1 to 2 minutes then remove from heat and let cool completely.
To prepare the hummus combine the garbonzo beans, tahini, garlic, lemon juice and sea salt in your food processor. Turn it on and slowly stream in the olive oil through the top chute until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add more olive oil if desired. Add 1 to 2 tbsp of the cooled caramelized onions to the hummus and pulse just a few times to incorporate. Place the hummus in a serving dish and top with the remaining caramelized onions. Enjoy with pita chips or fresh cut veggies!
