Pumpkin Hummus

I came across this recipe on the Care2.com website.  It looks delicious, and I’m a great fan of pumpkin in all its forms as well as loving hummus,  so I will be trying this recipe.  I might add some chilli instead of cumin as I love it.  I will probably use Lebanese bread instead of pita bread which I will heat up in the stove with a little olive oil on it and then cut up into triangles.  It should be delicious, healthy AND low in fat which is a winning combo!

1. Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin and a little olive oil replace the tahini in this seasonal hummus recipe! This is great with pita triangles or fresh veggies for dipping.


  • 15 ounce can of garbanzo beans
  • 2 cloves of raw garlic
  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil + extra for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds


1. Throw all of your ingredients except the pumpkin seeds into your blender and process until smooth.

2. Transfer to a glass bowl with a lid, and chill until you’re ready to serve. Drizzle with the extra olive oil and top with the pumpkin seeds just before serving.
