1 teaspoon cumin

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste

3 tablespoons olive oil


Place chickpeas, garlic cloves, lemon juice, water, and tahini in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add pumpkin and seasonings and blend until well incorporated. With the motor running, drizzle in olive oil until blended.

Taste, and adjust any seasonings to your taste (I added a bit more lemon juice, salt, and cayenne).

Optional Crackers to Serve with the Hummus:

Flour tortillas

Cooking spray

Garam masala, cumin, salt

Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut desired amount of tortillas into chip-sized triangles. Lay in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle the tops with the seasonings. Bake until crispy, 6 to 8 minutes.
