Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas (drained weight 260g)
  • 60 ml oil
  • 100 g onion chopped very finely
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • dessertspoon vinegar
  • 10 g sugar

To Serve

  • 16 slices homemade bread

Instructions

  • Place onion on baking sheet.
  • Mix vinegar and sugar together and drizzle over the onions.
  • Turn onion over with hands until covered.
  • Bake at the bottom of the oven (underneath something else you are cooking) until softened and browned turning over occasionally (at 200C this takes about 30 minutes)
  • Click here to start a 30 minute timer
  • Place the chick peas, garlic, and seasonings in a food processor, then gradually add the oil whilst pulsing the food processor until you have achieved a loose runny consistency a bit like natural yoghurt or double cream. Stir the roasted onions and their juices through your finished houmous.
  • Make once for Christmas week. Half the batch is used to make Tomato Houmous. If you're following the Celebration Week planner, I've added 16 slices of bread for 8 portions so the nutrition comes out correctly, but you would use 8 slices for this, and 8 slices and half the batch of Caramelised Onion Hummus for the tomato version
