Roast Onion Hoummous
Now a classic hummus flavour, but much nicer home made!
- 100 g dried chick peas dry weight chick peas cooked as per packet instructions
- 50 ml oil
- 100 g onion chopped very finely
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/4 tsp chilli
- 1 dessertspoon balsamic vinegar
- 10 g sugar
- 16 slices homemade bread
- 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)
- Place the chick peas, garlic, chilli 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 in the month- serve 10g per person per meal, can be frozen.
