Recipe for Pumpkin Hummus

This Recipe for Pumpkin Hummus takes less than 10-minutes to whip together, and is full of plant-based nutrients! An easy and fail-proof dish, you’ll have a party perfect and crowd-pleasing dip in no time.
How to Make this Recipe for Pumpkin Hummus
Made without oil, this pumpkin hummus recipe gets its creaminess from savory superfood tahini. The recipe as-is with the cumin has a mild Middle Eastern flavor profile, but I’ve actually made it with curry powder too. It’s an easy recipe to modify depending on the types of spices you’re drawn too.
The lemon juice in this recipe brings out the savory garlic and chopped cilantro. While the chickpeas and pumpkin puree create the wonderful base.
And don’t worry, there’s no pumpkin spice in this recipe, so it won’t taste like a weirdly savory pumpkin pie. The pumpkin adds a neutral and very mildly sweet flavor that’s very complimentary of the flavors in a typical, savory hummus recipe.
Tips to Make your Pumpkin Hummus Stand Out
This pumpkin hummus recipe is a real crowd pleaser, especially when you go the extra mile to implement a few of these quick tips:
Serve Inside a Carved Out Pumpkin: While most definitely optional, taking a few extra minutes to carve out a pumpkin, and present the dip inside will leave a lasting impression on your guests. Low effort, for major payoff!
Prioritize Fresh Ingredients: Not everything in this recipe must be fresh. However, prioritizing fresh cilantro, garlic cloves, and lemon juice make a major difference in this recipe!
Serve with Multiple Side Options: Below, you’ll see all of our favorite ways to enjoy Pumpkin Hummus! Instead of just one, just 2 or 3 different sides to serve up alongside this savory dip. The more variety, the more people who will enjoy!
Ways to Enjoy Pumpkin Hummus
While most people know how hummus is typically enjoyed (on crackers or veggies), there are many creative ways to enjoy hummus! Here are just a few of our favorites:
Make Deviled Eggs: Leftover hummus? Incorporate it into a deviled eggs recipe! Simply blend hummus and egg yolk until smooth, for a unique spin on your typical deviled eggs.
Salad Topping: Hummus makes the perfect creamy salad topping! Simple add a scoop of hummus to your next salad for an extra burst of flavor. We especially love this added to our Salad with Chicken Recipe Easy.
Sandwich Condiment: Utilize hummus as a sandwich condiment! You could swap your mayo for hummus for a protein-rich, and tasty alternative.
Raw Veggies: Like mentioned above, dipping raw veggies in hummus is one of the most typical ways to enjoy this savory dip, but that’s because it’s so delicious! This is also a great option for finger foods at parties and get-togethers.
Crackers: Enjoy your hummus with gluten-free crackers for another easy finger food option.
Tortilla Chips: Hummus and chips go together like peas and carrots, and if you have a bit of extra time to make them, our Homemade Tortilla Chips are pretty amazing.
