Caramelized Onion Hummus

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes 

A unique hummus recipe created with an onion caramelized in Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and blended with chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic and tahini. Simple, heart-healthy and flavorful!


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow or white onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons tahini (ground sesame seeds)
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water, as needed for desired consistency (I did not need to use any water)


  • Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion slices to skillet and cook for about 25 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add all other hummus ingredients (except water) to the bowl of a food processor and set aside until onion slices are ready.
  • Once onion slices are caramelized, allow them to cool slightly. Then add them to the food processor bowl with the other hummus ingredients. (if desired, reserve a small amount of onions for garnishing hummus)
  • Process ingredients until smooth. Add water as needed for desired consistency. (I didn't need any water for my hummus)
  • Transfer hummus to a serving bowl and garnish with additional caramelized onion slices. Serve with pita chips and/or raw veggies or use as a spread for wraps and sandwiches.


Make your own pita chips by using several pitas or Flatout wraps. Cut the pitas or wraps with a pizza cutter into desired shapes. Spray or brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese, or other desired seasoning. Bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees F. for about 8-10 minutes. Check frequently as the chips burn easily.
