Caramelized Onion Hummus is a savory snack that’s easy to make for a special treat. The caramelized onion swirled around in the mix really elevates this dip.
I heard someone talking about the caramelized onion flavored hummus available at a grocery store, and that had me thinking (and craving hummus)! If you’ve made hummus before you know how easy and satisfying it is to make.
This dip is creamy and filling, and it’s a healthy snack, too. When you blend the chickpeas (sometimes called garbanzo beans) and the other ingredients, you can easily adjust the flavor and texture by adding a bit more lemon juice or olive oil, and salt and pepper.
I buy hummus from the grocery store from time to time, but trust me – it’s soooo easy to make at home, and who doesn’t love homemade best?
If you’ve never made hummus before, keep reading and get ready to make one of the easiest (and healthy) snacks you can think of! Served with crackers and fresh crunchy veggies, hummus is a great go-to. AND…there are so many flavor options!
When something like hummus is so easy to make, it’s fun to experiment with different flavors. My Roasted Garlic and Purple Cauliflower Hummus, has a gorgeous color thanks to that purple cauliflower. One of my favorite bagel flavors – Everything Bagel – inspired this Easy Everything Hummus with Homemade Seasoning.
Don’t think you must only use chickpeas (garbanzo beans) to make hummus! My Spiced Edamame Hummus uses – you guessed it – edamame as a chickpea stand-in. You can even use a combo of ingredients like I did with this Roasted Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus.
Caramelized Onion Hummus
Caramelized Onion Hummus is a snack you want to make…maybe even this weekend! Paired with crackers or pita chips, and crunchy veggies, you’ll really enjoy this dip. It’s a great way to serve up a healthy snack that’s easy to make.
Most people will tell you the key to caramelizing onions is the “low and slow” cooking method: Cook them on low heat for a long while. Sometimes it’s hard to be patient when you’re cooking, but trust me, caramelized onions are worth the wait!
Usually, when I caramelize onions, I use more than one onion because they tend to shrink a bit when cooking them. For the caramelized onion hummus, you really only need one onion (two if you decide to double the recipe). That means the cooking time for the onion in this recipe is only about 30 minutes.
Have you had caramelized onions before? If you’ve enjoyed a good French onion soup, like this French onion soup from Gimme Some Oven, chances are you have.
You can include caramelized onions to so many things like salads or a delicious Patty melt sandwich! Mmm!
Make Caramelized Onion Hummus your snack of choice this weekend! You’ll love it!
