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!
INGREDIENTS
  • 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
  • ¼ 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)
 
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, add all other hummus ingredients (except water) to the bowl of a food processor and set aside until onion slices are ready.
  3. 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)
  4. Process ingredients until smooth. Add water as needed for desired consistency. (I didn't need any water for my hummus)
  5. 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.
 
NOTES
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.
