Caramelized Onion Hummus – a great snacking recipe!Β  Perfect for dipping chips, crackers and vegetables.

If you are a reader of the blog, you have read many times before that we love dips! Β Hummus is one of our favorite things, but with Toddler Veg’s diagnosis of multiple food allergies including peanuts/tree nuts we have stayed away from store bought hummus. So we have had fun creating our own at home. Β Honestly the ingredients are simpler and our home products are tastier! Just by simply using caramelized onions in this hummus recipe it takes it up a notch! Caramelized Onion Hummus, will be your new favorite!

Carmelized Onion Hummus
  • 1 can of chickpeas or dry bean equivalent
  • olive oil
  • ½ onion, diced very small
  1. Heat 1 T of oil in pan and carmelize the onions. It should take about 8-10 minutes. Add more oil if needed.
  2. Puree drained chickpeas and onions in a food processor. Add a touch more oil if too dry to mix.

    I’m not a big fan of hummus, but I think I would love this recipe! It’s more like a bean and onion dip with I love. Anything with caramelized onions has go to be good!

      Yes, its more of a bean dip. I left out the tahini due to nut allergies. There is a huge chance for cross contamination during processing so we just avoid it πŸ™‚ Hope you love it! πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!!

    This is one of those recipes where I think, “why the heck didn’t I think of that?!” and then promptly go out and make it! Cannot wait to give this one a try–what a great idea! πŸ™‚

    • Cindy says:

      Hi Ricki, its very much an honor to have you at my site! I met you at Nourished and very much enjoyed your session! πŸ™‚ This is our “hummus” I avoid tahini in my recipes, to avoid any tree nut cross contmanination. Just keeping my little guy safe; he loves our ‘hummus’. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  9. How did you know I’ve recently been consuming copious amount of store-bought caramelized onion hummus! Thanks for the recipe to recreate it πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for submitting to HVF πŸ™‚

    • Cindy says:

      I was at the store, I totally saw your cart πŸ™‚ LOL Just kidding of course. Hope that you like it. You can also throw in some tahini, I just stay away from it because my little guy has peanut/tree nut allergies. There is too much of a chance for cross contamination. Just visited your site, the DIY shampoo looks awesome, Thanks for linking that! πŸ™‚

  11. Wow, I love recipes that I can actually remember by the time I get into the kitchen. I adore this at the shop and can’t believe I didn’t think to make it either. Thank you for thinking of it and sharing it with us. I make hummus every week so going to try this next week. Many thanks

      Thanks Katherine. The great thing about making things at home is you can adjust them specifically to meet your tastes. A little of this and a little more of that πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
