Beet Hummus and Caramelized Onion Crostini
Author: Julia
For the Crostini:
  • 1 Udi's Gluten-Free French Baguette sliced into thick rounds and toasted
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • Beet hummus recipe below
  • Caramelized onions recipe below
Caramelized Onions:
For the beet hummus:
  • 1 ounce can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed, 14-
  • 2 small beets roasted and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil
Prepare the Caramelized Onions:
  1. Add the olive oil to a large non-stick skillet, along with the sliced onions and sea salt. Heat over medium-high and saute, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to sweat and begin turning translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and continue sauteeing, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to brown, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onions are deeply browned and caramelized, about 25 to 30 minutes more. Note: If onions begin to stick to the pan at any point, you can de-glaze with a few tablespoons of water (or beer or wine). Add the Italian seasoning and set aside until ready to use.
Make the beet hummus:
  1. While the onions are caramelizing, prepare the beet hummus. To do so, add all of the ingredients except for the oil to a food processor. Process until mostly smooth. In a steady stream with the food processor on, slowly add the olive oil through the whole in the top of the food processor. Continue blending until completely smooth. Taste beet hummus for flavor. Add more lemon juice, spices, and/or sea salt to taste.
Prepare the Crostini:
  1. Smear desired amount of beet hummus on top of thick toasted pieces of baguette. Top with caramelized onions and feta, and serve! Note: if desired, place prepared crostini on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a 375 degree oven, until warm.
