Raspberry vinegar gives this hummus a little kick, but you can use any kind of vinegar you have on hand.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups diced onion
2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
1 (15 1/2-ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), undrained
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cilantro sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, and saute 5 minutes or until onion begins to brown. Add vinegar, and bring to a boil, and cook 2 minutes or until vinegar evaporates. Cool to room temperature.
Drain chickpeas through a sieve over a bowl, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Place chickpeas and chopped cilantro in a food processor, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add onion mixture, 1/4 cup reserved liquid, cumin, pepper, and salt, and process until smooth. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.
My friends love it when I serve this hummus. It takes a little bit of work but it is satisfying to know I've made the hummus from scratch. The raspberry vinegar gives it a little kick but the raspberry flavor isn't very noticeable. You can also mix it up, depending on what kind of vinegar you have on hand.
