  • 1 small Onion , peeled and sliced thinly
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil , divided
  • 1 teaspoon Agave Nectar
  • 15 oz Chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup Pine Nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Basil , or one leaf of fresh basil
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 3 tablespoons Lime Juice
  • 1 tablespoon Nutritional Yeast Flakes


  • Place a skillet over medium heat and add the sliced onions. Drizzle with one tablespoon olive oil. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Then add a teaspoon of agave nectar to help caramelize the onions quickly. Once the onions are tender and have some color, set aside.
  • Drain the liquid from the chickpeas into a bowl. Then pour the chickpeas into the NutraMilk. Add the pine nuts and secure the lid on the NutraMilk. Press "Butter" and then reduce the time to 1 minute. Press "start".
  • Add the two remaining tablespoons of olive oil, the lime juice, basil, nutritional yeast flakes, garlic, and the caramelized onion. Secure the lid on the NutraMilk, press "butter" and then reduce the time to 1 minute. Press "start."
  • If the hummus is too thick, add a tablespoon or two of the liquid drained from the chickpeas and stir until you get a desirable spreadability. You can also process in the Nutramilk for another minute if you prefer a more smooth texture to your hummus. 
  • Serve with crackers, pita chips, veggies, or in place of mayo on your favorite veggie burgers.
