Orange Hummus

+ enlarge

I love hummus, but it didn’t occur to me for a long time to add orange juice to it, to make it more flavorful. I imagine you could try other juices as well (although I’m not sure how good Kool-Aid hummus would taste).


  • Two cans garbanzo beans, rinsed and dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of cumin, coriander, ginger, dry mustard, turmeric, and paprika
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • Three medium garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Cayenne to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients, and mix in blender until smooth.
  2. Cover mixture and refrigerate for two hours, so flavors blend together.
  3. Remove from refrigerator thirty minutes before serving.
  4. Drizzle with additional olive oil, if desired.
  5. Serve with pitas, pita chips, and multi-seed crackers or fresh-cut carrots, celery, and peppers.
