I first tasted hummus at a Middle Eastern restaurant in Minneapolis called Jerusalem's several decades ago. It was delightful; all buttery and lemony. So I decided it would be a good thing to have at home. I tried several versions of store bought hummus including a local variety made by Holy Land in northeast Minneapolis. It is quite good, but none of them really seemed to be the right flavor for me. Perhaps it is the Scandinavian boy from the prairie who grew up on blandness? Not! I think it really is that I wanted something smooth with a little tang that could be spread on bread as a sandwich or used as a dip for chips or pita. Something versatile and yummy. So, for years I made batches of hummus. Unfortunately, my kids really don't like hummus, so I've had to eat a lot of it on my quest for perfection. Today, I got it and I'm going to share it with you: My Perfect Hummus!
Just stop with the craziness of standing over a stove stirring onions for over an hour or two on low while you wait for their golden brown decadence to develop. Seriously, I do not need any more time to contemplate weight loss. Plop them in a crock pot, a little olive oil, salt and 7 hours later on high with occasional stirring or 12 hours later on low with no stirring, you'll have the most delicious sweet onions ever. And I promise they'll help you lose weight. Wink.
