Cranberry Bean and Caramelized Onion Hummus (vegan) / Humus od trešnjevca i karameliziranog luka (veganski)

It started off with a batch of accidentally overcooked beans. I planned to add the cooked beans to a salad, but they ended up so sad looking that I eventually changed my mind about this. However, they seemed perfect for a quick hummus.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 2 cups / 0.68 EUR per cup / 1.36 EUR for all)

2 large onions (0.20 EUR)

½ cup olive oil, divided (0.67 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

2 cups precooked cranberry beans (0.33 EUR)

1 tsp sweet Hungarian paprika (0.03 EUR)

Pinch of red pepper flakes (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp salt (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

Peel and chop up the onion, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and then saute on low for 30-40 minutes, until caramelized. In the beginning you’ll only need to give an occasional stir, but keep a close eye on the onions towards the end so they do not burn. Be patient and resist the temptation to crank the heat up.

Once the onions are caramelized, add in minced garlic, rinsed precooked beans, paprika and red pepper flakes, just to heat it all up a bit. Stir for a few minutes, remove from heat and run through a food processor with the remaining oil, salt and pepper. If the paste seems too thick, add in a bit of water. Taste and adjust seasoning and serve chilled with crackers, pita bread, vegetables, in sandwiches or with salads.

Hummus will keep refrigerated for a week, but you can also freeze it for up to a couple of months.

Sve je počelo sa grahom kojeg sam slučajno prekuhala. Planirala sam ubaciti taj grah u salatu, ali izgledao je tako tužno da sam se na kraju predomislila. Srećom, bio je savršen za brzinski humus.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 2 šalice / 5,08 kn po šalici / 10,16 kn za sve)

2 velika luka (1,50 kn)

½ šalice maslinovog ulja (5,00 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 šalice skuhanog graha trešnjevca (2,50 kn)

1 žličica slatke crvene paprike (0,25 kn)

Prstohvat čilija u pahuljicama (0,10 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

½ žličice svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,05 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i narežite luk, dodajte dvije žlice ulja, pa dinstajte na laganoj vatri 30-40 minuta, dok se luk ne karamelizira. U početku ćete morati samo povremo promiješati, ali prema kraju dobro pazite na luk kako vam ne bi zagorio. Budite strpljivi i oduprite se iskušenju da odfrljite vatru.

Kada se luk karamelizira, dodajte sitno sjeckani češnjak, oprani skuhani grah, slatku papriku i čili, samo da se sve ugrije. Kratko promiješajte, skinite s vatre i sameljite u multipraktiku sa ostatkom ulja, soli i paprom. Ako vam se pasta čini pregusta, dodajte mrvicu vode. Kušajte i prilagodite začine, pa poslužite ohlađeno sa krekerima, pita kruhom, povrćem, u sendvičima ili sa salatama.

Humus će držati u hladnjaku do tjedan dana, a možete ga bez problema i zamrznuti na par mjeseci.
