Easy Pumpkin Hummus

This hummus is flavorful, easy to make, healthy and will hit the spot during your fall celebrations.

Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is so simple to make and so delicious. Classic hummus is made of tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, and salt. But did you know that you can add different ingredients and make it any kind of flavor? From savory to sweet like chocolate or strawberry.

This recipe is very easy to make. It comes together in less than 10 minutes with just a few ingredients. You just add all the ingredients to your food processor, pulse and it’s done! Be sure to scrape down the sides a few times.

Some of the ingredients. I save the aquafaba for another recipe.

Tahini is a sesame paste and you can usually find it in the ethnic section of your supermarket. Make sure that you use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.

Pumpkin Purée

If you need to bring a yummy treat to any celebration this is the right recipe for you. The combination of cinnamon, ginger and garlic goes surprisingly well. You can serve it with tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, vegetables, or use it as a spread on sandwiches, wraps or on your salads.

Ready in less than 10 minutes
