Toasted Walnut Hummus

Mike has been on a real hummus kick lately, making all different kinds. This is a real winner. He prefers it when the walnuts get a tiny bit burned, but I prefer it the way it is written.

1/2 cup California walnuts

3 T walnut oil

1 garlic clove quartered

1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed

1/4 tsp orange zest

1/4 cup orange juice

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1. Toast walnuts in 350 degree oven for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool to room temperature.

2. Combine toasted walnuts with oil and garlic and puree in food processor until smooth.

3. Add chickpeas, orange zest, orange juice, salt and pepper and continue to blend to an even, smooth consistency. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

4. Wow your hummus-eating friends.
