Ingredients

For Hummus

  • 1 15- ounce can garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 4.25- ounce jar of Beech-Nut just carrots puree
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

For Toasted Paprika Pita Chips

  • 4 pita pockets whole wheat, white or gluten free
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Spray or line a baking sheet.
  • Cut the pita pockets into 8 wedges each and place on baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Generously brush the tops of the pita bread with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake the pita bread for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
  • Meanwhile, in a food processor or blender, add in the garbanzo beans, carrot puree, orange juice, garlic, cumin and salt and pulse until just combined.
  • Turn machine on and drizzle the olive oil into the mixture. For a smooth hummus, blend for 1-2 minutes on high speed.
  • Spoon hummus into a bowl, sprinkle with paprika and chopped parsley (optional).
  • Place pita chips and cut veggies on to a plate and serve.

Notes

Note on Puree - you can also use homemade carrot puree in this recipe, like this one.
Note on Salt - this hummus is perfect for babies 6+ Months old, just omit the salt in their portion. You can also use just a pinch of Himalayan Salt instead of sea salt, which has proven healthy benefits (read more here).
