RECIPE
GREAT PUMPKIN HUMMUS

Get into the spirit of the season by incorporating pumpkin and pumpkin spice into a timeless classic, hummus.

Here’s how I make my Great Pumpkin Spice Hummus:

In a food processor, add one 15-ounce can of chickpeas that ave been drained with 5 tablespoons of roasted and pureed pumpkin [you can use canned or roast your own], 5 tablespoons of tahini or smooth peanut butter, and 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Add 2 tablespoons pumpkin spice [you can use prepared or make your own], 2 tablespoons water, and 1 garlic clove.

Pulse until smooth and season with salt. Serve with olive oil drizzled on top and garnished with crushed red pepper flakes and roasted pumpkin seeds.

The hummus can be used as a spread on sandwiches, added as a filler to wraps, or enjoyed as a dip with crackers or fresh cut vegetables like carrots or celery.
