Saturday Do-It-Yourself – Pumpkin Hummus

Posted by on Sat, October 26th, 2013 at 11:00 am
Great Gourds! I love Autumn and today’s Do-It-Yourself recipe takes advantage of the harvests’ bounties.  Swaggernaut Rebafan99 of Vancouver, BC recommends celebrating with Pumpkin Hummus:
My Swag name is Rebafan99 and I would like to submit a recipe for Pumpkin Hummus.  I enjoy anything with pumpkin and I am a big fan of hummus, so why not an easy recipe that incorporates both?  You can make this any time of year with canned pumpkin, but I enjoy roasting fresh pumpkin and using it in place of canned pumpkin.  You can adjust the garlic and seasonings to your liking.  I hope you enjoy it!
Pumpkin Hummus
2 tbsp tahini
2 tsp oil (I use olive oil)
2 tsp cumin powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 large can (19 oz/540 ml) chick peas, drained and rinsed
2 cups pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
2 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 tsp each allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg
Combine and puree all ingredients until smooth.  Best chilled a couple hours to enhance the mixture of flavors.  Serve with chips and/or vegetables.
Cheers!
Thanks, Rebafan99, that looks great and a perfect addition to any potluck or tailgate party.
