How To Make Caramelized Onions
Cook onions in olive oil over medium heat. Stir them every few minutes. With caramelized onions, it's all about slow and steady.
The more onions, the longer they'll take to cook. If the onions start to stick, add a little water, like a quarter of a cup or so.
Add brown sugar or balsamic vinegar near the end of cooking time to add flavor.
How to Make This Recipe
Mix garbanzo beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, caramelized onions, olive oil, salt, and water in a food processor until creamy.
Besides using this as a dip, this hummus is a great addition to a sandwich.
