Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 15 ounce can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1 clove garlic

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. For carmelized onion, in a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and sugar; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook and stir for 20 to 25 minutes or until onions are very tender and caramelized. Coarsely chop; set aside.
  2. For hummus, in a food processor combine beans, water, olive oil, sesame oil, garlic, snipped rosemary, salt, and black pepper. Cover and process until smooth. Stir in 2 Tbsp. of the cheese. Transfer to a 12- to 16-ounce individual casserole.
  3. Top hummus with caramelized onion and remaining cheese. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is browned and hummus is heated through. Garnish with rosemary sprig. Serve with baguette slices and carrot and celery sticks.
