This Pumpkin Hummus recipe is divine!! It’s the next best thing to original hummus on your sandwich or dipping those crudités and pita bread in!
It is so easy and quick to make. Doesn’t cost a fortune to make either and no fancy gadgets needed. Just grab your kids to do the messy work letting them gut out the pumpkins. It’s a team effort and save those seeds for roasting too. Yum!
It’s the perfect recipe for Fall time to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving and even make it for Christmas (just top with pomegranate seeds to make it festive). Either way, pumpkin hummus is a sure win in our house with the whole family.
We love dipping our veggies in it as much as toasted pita breads and even on plain toast. My ultimate favorite way to eat it is on a sandwich though. Forget the mayo and the butter, pumpkin hummus gives your sandwich flavor, color, and life.
Try this Pumpkin Hummus Recipe for Halloween:
Blend together 1 cup Baked Pumpkin, 1 can Chickpeas, 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice, 2 Tbsp Oil, 2 Tbsp Tahini, 4 Garlic Cloves, 2 tsp Smoked Paprika and 1 tsp Ground Cumin!
It’s that easy and perfect to spread on anything you like! Top with pumpkin seeds, nigella seeds, and some smoked paprika and you’re ready to serve! Your sandwiches will never be the same neither will the talk of you serving pumpkin hummus at your next gathering.
We like to have as little waste as we can in this family. If you can carve the pumpkins out for Halloween, use the flesh for Pumpkin recipes and roast the seeds for a snack or toppings then there is no waste to be had by Halloween pumpkins. Save the world, one recipe at a time!
