Is hummus a verb?
"I was hummusing in the kitchen"
I don't think so, but it is for this post!
Last week, I got my hummus on in the kitchen and created a delicious hummus recipe to share with you today! Personally, I feel that I got this recipe bang on on my first attempt, so I am quite proud of it I must say.
It's creamy, it's smooth, and it's super flavourful. The perfect hummus in my opinion
I'm actually very intrigued when it comes to hummus… there are so many different flavours and types! Sweet potato hummus, pumpkin hummus, white bean hummus, edamame hummus, and the list goes on…
I thought that since hummus comes in a variety of different types and flavours, I would make mine a little unique, too!
Caramelized Onion Hummus
1 cup canned chickpeas
1 TBSP tahini
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP dijon mustard
1 1/2 cup raw sweet onion, sliced (or 1/2 heaping cup sauteed sweet onion)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water (or until desired consistency is reached)
Heat oil in a frying pan over low-medium heat. Add onions and garlic.
Sautee until fragrant and a lovely caramelized colour is reached.
Oh goodness, I love caramelized onions!!
Once the onions and garlic are cooked, add all ingredients into a blender.
In total, I added 1/4 cup of water to reach the consistency I wanted, but I added it a TBSP at a time.
I've been enjoying this hummus pretty much every day. My favourite way to have it is mixed and warmed up with spaghetti squash and shredded chicken!
