INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup raw pumpkin peeled and chopped into chunks (sub in 1 cup pumpkin puree if needed) see notes
  • ½ head garlic
  • 3 cups cooked chickpeas (garbanzo beans) (about 2 cans)
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and ground pepper
  • optional: smoked paprika, pumpkin seeds, ground cumin, chopped fresh parsley and extra chickpeas for serving

INSTRUCTIONS

To Roast Pumpkin and Garlic

  • Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
  • Add the cubed pumpkin to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Wrap the ½ head of garlic in aluminium foil and place it on the tray with the pumpkin. Roast the garlic and pumpkin for about 20-25 minutes, or until they are fork-tender.
  • Allow the garlic to cool and it will be easy to remove their skin.

 

To Make Pumpkin Hummus

  • Place all of the ingredients except for the olive oil into the bowl of a food processor, and blend until smooth.
  • Once smooth, slowly add the olive oil while the food processor is still running.
  • If the pumpkin hummus is too thick, add more olive oil or filtered water 1 tablespoon at a time, while still blending, until the desired consistency is reached.

  • Storing: store pumpkin hummus in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

  • Leftovers: can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Try freezing in small portions so that small amounts can be removed from the freezer and will thaw quickly.
  • Tip: for a nice pop of color try adding some ground turmeric or paprika to your hummus when blending.

 

How to serve and use hummus

Hummus is one of those versatile dips that can be used in so many ways. It can be used as a snack dip all by itself, or it can be used in a number of other recipes. Why not try out some of these options:

  • use as an alterative to butter in a sandwich or wrap;
  • use as a salad dressing when mixed with some olive oil to thin it out, like in this recipe Baked Almond Crunch Falafel Bowl with Two Second Dressing;

 

  • mix through some pasta as a sauce;
  • whisk a spoonful into your scrambled eggs for an extra pop of flavor;
  • use as a base on pizza instead of tomato sauce;

How long does hummus last: storage and freezing tips

  • Homemade pumpkin hummus should be stored in an airtight container with a lid in the fridge after it has been prepared.
  • It will last about 3-4 days.
  • Store-bought hummus will last longer, about 5-7 days, but this is usually because it has added preservatives, which we are avoiding by making homemade hummus.

 

  • Homemade hummus can also be frozen.
  • Do not freeze a huge batch all at once, as this will take a while to defrost.
  • Instead, split it into smaller, more manageable batches before freezing.
  • Why not try adding your hummus to an ice cube tray, so you can just take out an individual serving when needed.
