Orange and Rosemary Focaccia with Vegan Hummus Cream

Ingredients

  • 3 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp rosemary, chopped
  • 1/3 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup hummus
  • 1/4 plain, unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix 1 cup warm water, 1 cup flour, maple syrup, and active dry yeast until smooth. Cover and let sit for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix 1 tsp salt and the rest of the flour in a large mixing bowl. Blend in the yeast mixture with a spoon and begin kneading until smooth. It takes a bit of patience but keep persisting!
  3. Cover a 8x8 or 10x6 baking pan with parchment paper and drizzle with 2 tbsp of olive oil. Stretch the dough onto the pan, working to create an even layer and smooth edges. If you don't have the right size baking pan, you can also stretch this to approximate size onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Use your fingertips to press into the dough and create dimples.
  5. Sprinkle the rosemary and 1/4 tsp of salt evenly on top. Pour 2 tbsp of olive oil and spread to corners not coated.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the hummus and almond milk until smooth. Place in fridge until the focaccia is ready.
  7. Take the bread out of the oven and spread the orange marmalade on top with a spoon. Bake another 10-15 minutes until the crust is a light golden brown. Let cool.
  8. Slice and stack on a plate. Drizzle the hummus cream on top or serve on the side.
