Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin Hummus | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen | One of the BEST #hummus recipes you'll ever eat! #glutenfree #vegan #appetizer #pumpkin

Oh, my! If I thought the “Simply Delicious Homemade Hummus” recipe was fantastic, words can’t even express how wonderful this recipe was. What a fabulous appetizer. It’s great for after school snack for your kids, for parties and potlucks, and even a great snack to take to work. It’s healthy, low calorie, gluten and dairy free, and vegan. It’s a great way to get ME (let alone my kids) to eat more fresh veggies.

I am indebted to Tina Danze and The Dallas Morning News, for sharing a fabulous pumpkin section in the newspaper this week.  I’ve changed the recipe a bit because I wanted to use roasted garlic instead of fresh. I added Tamari sauce which isn’t included in the original recipe. I also increased the seasonings. The end result is spectacular. If you make it, I’m sure you’ll agree.

Serve Pumpkin Hummus with a wide array of veggies. This is a very healthy snack alternative to chips, granola bars, and other unhealthy snacks that are filled with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, MSG, and other preservatives and fillers.

 

Here’s what I did.

Place mashed garbanzo beans in blender. Add lemon juice, pumpkin, tahini (sesame paste), olive oil, ground cumin, chili powder, Kosher salt, pepper, tamari soy sauce (this has less sodium so it doesn’t spike the hummus with too strong of a salty taste.) Remove garlic cloves from bulb. Peel each individual clove removing the skin. Add to blender.
