Prep Time15 mins

Total Time20 mins



  • 2 TBS olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 15-oz (425g) can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 to 2 TBS water, adjust to the consistency you want
  • 1 1/2 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 oz smoked salmon, chopped


  • Breton's Gluten-Free Original with Flax crackers
  • Guacamole, see Notes for recipe
  • Mango Salsa, see Notes for recipe
  • 1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced


  • In a sauté pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions. Cook the onions until they are softened and turning translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir occasionally. Turn off the heat and let the onions cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • In a blender or food processor, mix the onions, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, chickpeas, water, lemon juice, and salt. Blend until smooth. I used 2 tablespoons of water because I wanted a more smooth hummus. You can use less water for a thicker hummus.
  • Pour the hummus in a bowl, and stir in about three-quarters of the smoked salmon. Top hummus with the remaining chopped salmon.
  • Serve with Breton's gluten-free crackers. Top the hummus with your favorite additions, like guacamole, salsa, or cucumbers!
