Caramelised Onion Houmous (Vegan & GF)

  • 2 tps of rapeseed oil
  • 4 shallots,finely sliced
  • 1 onion, finely sliced
  • 1 can of chickpeas (400g)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tbsp of tahini paste
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper

How to make Caramelised Onion Houmous (Vegan & GF)

1. In a large wok, heat 2 teaspoons of rapeseed oil. Once hot, add in the finely sliced shallots & onion and cook for around 5-8 minutes until the onions turn golden in colour.

2. Place the chickpeas, fried shallots & onion, crushed garlic, tahini paste, lemon juice, water, 1 tablespoon of rapeseed oil, salt and pepper into a food processor. Whizz up on high until smooth. Add a little extra water if the houmous is too thick.

3. That's it. I served my houmous with some BioSnacky® Wellness Mix Sprouts and 'Mellojuice' watermelon seeds. Both of these additions add an extra layer of flavour whilst adding texture and extra nutrition!

I hope you give this delicious houmous a try! And if you do, be sure to tag the picture #AVogelRecipes on Pinterest so we can see :)
