Balsamic Caramelized Onion Hummus
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions, stir to coat with oil, and cook for 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt.
Spread onions evenly in the skillet and cook for 25 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until onions are softened.
Add 1 teaspoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar to the skillet, stir to coat all, and cook for an additional minute or two. Remove from heat. Reserve a small amount of caramelized onions for topping the hummus, and add the rest to the bowl of a food processor or blender.
To make a balsamic reduction, add 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and simmer for a few minutes until reduced to a thick, syrupy liquid. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Add prepared hummus and 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar to the caramelized onions in food processor or blender, and blend until smooth.
- Serve hummus topped with reserved caramelized onions and a drizzle of balsamic reduction, along with crackers, crudités, and pita chips.
