I’m going to give you a fair warning here: This Caramelized Onion Hummus Recipe is the most addictive hummus you’ll ever consume and it’s so so easy to make!
A couple months ago I purchased a couple tubs of hummus at the grocery store to try out. One was a roasted garlic flavor and one was a caramelized onion flavor. The roasted garlic one was delicious, but oh ma gosh, that caramelized onion hummus was phenomenal.
It was gone before I even had a chance to blink.
I purchased it again and brought some with me to the Canada Day parade to snack on with some carrot stick and cucumber slices. While my friend and I were licking the bowl clean, she suggested that I make my own recipe and share it on the blog.
It’s seriously so much cheaper to make this hummus at home than to buy it at the store. Ok, so you do have to purchase some tahini, which is a sesame paste. And yes, can be a little on the expensive side, but it lasts a long time and you could make like 15 batches of hummus… so totally worth it, right!?!
The hummus is smooth and creamy with a sweet and smoky flavor from the caramelized onions. The onions are slowly cooked down and then caramelized with brown sugar and a touch of balsamic vinegar. I like to throw a couple tablespoons of the onions into the actual hummus and leave the rest for a topping.
I’ve already made this recipe like 10 times myself, so I’m sure you’re going to absolutely love it too.
