Let’s be honest here…I’m kind of ready for football season to be over. Done. No more. But hey, go out with a bang and make it fun, right? Here is a yummy hummus recipe that is simultaneously healthy, delicious, and the perfect snacky thing to have on hand for parties, salty cravings, or Superbowls.Roasting the onions gives a sweet and distinct flavor to the hummus. I usually put onions in my hummus, and I like that you can still have onion flavor without it knocking you over.
1 can of chickpeas, drained, liquid saved
2 tablespoons tahini
1 onion, roasted (450 for however long it takes to get them soft and transluscent)
2 garlic cloves, smashed
paprika, cumin, red pepper, salt and pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor. Add chickpea liquid to thin it out as needed. You can also sub in olive oil for a more distinct flavor here. I add the herbs after it is finished blending, so the hummus doesn’t turn green.
