Directions

1.  Dice onion into small cubes.  Not sure how to properly peel and cut an onion?  This might help.

2.  Pour 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan with diced onion and cook over high heat until transparent, about 4-5 minutes. Stir occasionally.

5.  Place the garbanzo beans, olive oil, tahini and garlic into a food processor. You can allow the caramelized onion to cool, or you can do what I do and just pour them right into the food processor to make slightly warm hummus.
