I'm actually not a huge fan of hummus. But come to find out it tastes much better homemade. And the addition of the orange maralade here turned it into something I actually enjoy eating. I can't say as much for my 3 year old, but the 5 year old loves it.
The idea for orange in the hummus comes from 1,001 Lowfat Vegetarian Recipes by Sue Spitler.
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans (a.k.a. chickpeas)
¼ cup orange juice
1 tablespoon sesame tahini
1 tablespoon orange maralade (optional)
1 teaspoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon curry powder
¼ teaspoon salt
Place all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Take a couple breaks while processing to wipe down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
Serve with pita bread, pretzels, or carrot sticks. Store any leftover hummus in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
