caramelized onion & bean dip

Caramelized onions are quickly making their way to my ever-growing list of favorite foods. They are good with goat cheese, fabulous on crostini and amazing in dips. I recently brought some bean dip to a friends house but wanted to add something to make it a little bit different and figured that caramelized onions would be the way to go. It added an almost smokey element and a little texture to the dip.

Caramelized Onion & Bean Dip

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 can navy beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 can garbanzo beans, rinsed
  • salt & pepper

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in pan and add onions, stirring occasionally until onions are turning dark and caramelizing. Pulse beans with other Tbsp olive oil and season with salt & pepper in food processor to desired consistency. Add onions and pulse to combine. Serve with crudites, crackers, bread, etc.
