Roasted Shallot & Hemp Hummus

The roasted shallots add a delightful caramelized flavor to this super-nutritious hummus.

Makes 2-1/2 cups

What You Need:

  • 1 cup shallots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 3/4 cup shelled hemp seeds
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided
  • 1 medium clove garlic
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons water

What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss shallots with olive oil and salt. Bake for 40 minutes or longer, tossing occasionally, until golden brown.
  2. In a food processor, combine chickpeas, hemp seeds, 3 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and water (starting with 3 tablespoons). Purée until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
