This tasty Spicy Pumpkin Hummus is sure to be a hit this fall, with the perfect hint of spice to give your taste buds a kick, but feel free to add more cayenne pepper if you want it even spicier; as with any hummus recipe, the ingredients can be adjusted until you get the flavor you like!
Makes about 2 ½ cups of hummus
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons tahini
1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
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:
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.
