Caramelised Onion Hummus

We will be bankrupt if we keep buying store bought hummus so decided to make it ourselves. Gosh - it’s super easy and we can adjust the recipe to be just the way we like it.  This one has caramelised onions in it. A sweet hummus that goes beautifully with flat breads.

Free From: Gluten, Eggs, Dairy, Soya

Contains: Sesame



400g tin of chick peas

1 medium onion - diced

¼ cup brown sugar

Juice from 2 lemons

2 minced cloves of garlic

2 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp liquid from the tin of chick peas

1 tsp sea salt



First off slice the onion thinly and add to a frying pan with a bit of olive oil and the brown sugar. Fry over a lowish heat until you get a beautiful golden colour. This takes a good 20 minutes. Set to one side to cool.

Drain the chick peas and reserve the liquid.

Throw the chick peas, lemon juice, garlic, tahini and sea salt into the blender. Blend til smooth. You will have a very thick hummus at this point. I prefer mine a bit runnier so I add in 2 tbsp of liquid from the tin and whiz it again.

Stir in the caramelised onion (reserving a bit for the top) and serve with flatbreads, carrot and cucumber.

Here is the flatbread recipe:
