Caramelized Onion Hummus

Use as a Base for Wraps or for Snacking with Whole Grain Crackers or Romaine Lettuce

Makes ~2 cups


1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 Tbsp. tahini

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 small white onion, sliced thin

1/2 tsp. olive oil (optional)

1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. date sugar

Fresh ground black pepper


Sauté the onion until softened, ~5 minutes.  You can sauté in ½ t. olive oil or sauté without oil at all. Add vinegar and date sugar and stir to combine with onions.  Continue to heat until vinegar is reduced, ~ 5-7 minutes.  Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper and set aside.

Place onion mixture, chickpeas, garlic, salt, and lemon juice into a food processor.  Mix until a smooth puree is formed.  Spoon into a covered container and refrigerate until ready to use.
