I’m having a lot of fun coming up with other uses for pumpkin other than pumpkin flavored baked goods. While scooping out some pumpkin puree, it made me think of hummus.
I adore hummus. Hummus and pita chips are a serious weakness of mine. So I thought about making a pumpkin hummus.
This is really easy. Just blend a few ingredients in a food processor and it’s ready to go. I ran out of pita chips so I ate these with tortilla chips. Still delicious.
- 1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained
- 2 tbsp minced garlic
- juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp water
- 3 tbsp tahini
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- salt to taste
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 3 tbsp olive oil
Combine all ingredients into food processor and blend until smooth. You can adjust some of the seasonings according to your own personal tastes.
