Ok, so the caramelised onion hummus may not be really Moroccan but it is soooooo good! I may have stolen the idea from Tesco but this is 100% homemade, 100% natural and 100% tasty! Oh and don’t be put off thinking flat breads are bread, it is so much easier and involve no yeast so no waiting time, just give it a go!
This is to serve 4 people;
Moroccan Flat Breads
– 200g plain flour
– 2 tsp cumin
– 2 tsp ground coriander
– ½ tsp ground ginger
Mix all the dry ingredients together
Add water a little bit at a time, stirring between each addition until it is of a dough consistency
Divide into 4 balls and roll out to about 1mm thick (as thin as you can get them) on a floured surface
Get a dry frying pan really hot and add each bread 1 at a time for a minute on each side. Once you see it start to bubble up flip it. If it bubbles too much just stab it to let the air out.
Caramelised Onion Hummus
– 1 red onion, sliced
– 30g butter
– Splash olive oil
– 1 tbsp sugar
– 1 desert spoon balsamic vinegar
– Half a 400g can of chickpeas
– 2 tbsp lemon juice or more
– 2 garlic cloves, crushed
– 1 tsp ground cumin
– 1 tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
– 4 tbsp water
– 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Heat the oil and the butter in a frying pan until the butter has melted.
Add the sliced onion and soften for a few minutes
Add the sugar and balsamic vinegar, turn down the heat and leave to simmer for ten minutes.
Blend all the other ingredients together until smooth and season to taste. Add more lemon juice or garlic if you need to.
Now add the onions and blend again, I prefer a chunky bits of onions in mine so blend I tend to just whiz it quickly.
Serve warm or cold, whatever your preference 😀
