Caramelized Onion Hummus

I hope you enjoyed your weekend… I did! I was in Savannah celebrating a close friend’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding, and Savannah is a gorgeous, historic city. Now, it’s back to reality. Good news is that this heat wave finally broke, and what better way to celebrate then with this delicious Caramelized Onion Hummus. I caramelized onions and then pureed them with garlic, chickpeas, tahini, fresh rosemary, and lemon juice. This hummus is creamy and full of flavor. Enjoy and enjoy your week!
Ingredients:
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 cups canned chickpeas, drained, liquid reserved
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 6 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 2 tablespoons water or liquid from the chickpeas
Directions:
  1. In a medium saute pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and turn heat to low, caramelizing onions until translucent. Add onions to food processor.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until the hummus is pureed. Add more water or liquid from chickpeas until desired smoothness. Serve hummus with toasted pita or bread.
