Moroccan Whole Chickpea Hummus

Serves 8

Adding whole chickpeas to hummus gives this dip a hearty, chewy texture. Here the chickpeas are sautéed with onion and spices for extra flavor. For extra flavor, garnish with olive oil, chopped green chiles, and chopped cilantro.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ cup finely diced white onion
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. ground caraway seeds
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. curry powder
  • ⅛ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas or 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • ½ cup finely chopped Italian parsley, plus extra leaves for garnish
  • 1 recipe Classic Hummus

1. Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, salt, caraway, cumin, curry, and pepper; sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Add chickpeas; cook 2 minutes more. Stir in lemon juice and 1/4 cup water, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in parsley. Cool to room temperature.

2. Spread Classic Hummus in shallow dish, and mound chickpea mixture in center. Garnish with fresh parsley leaves.

Thanks for nutrition info. Could you also PLEASE include with every recipe an easy way to reduce quantity---I'M an 82 yr. old widow with very small food capacity and type 2 diabetes. Most recipes from any source are overwhelmingly large for me. When I was first diagnosed, I controlled blood sugars by becoming vegetarian, lost 40 the process. Tho I now eat meat it is a very minor part of my diet but I would like to reduce it to O. Good to be in touch with VT again. Thanks

This stuff is the best hummus EVER. I chop up a hot pepper and saute it (it's in the picture but not in the recipe). I've served this at two dinner parties with the homemade pita from the same issue. Rave reviews!

Sounds delightful. Love hummus, will try this way, too!

Hi, I tried to look up substitutes for the caraway seeds and found that it's close to cumin, but you already have cumin in the recipe. Should I use more cumin if I can't find these seeds? What would you recommend? thanks!
