Add an extra festive touch to your Halloween or Thanksgiving buffet table, with this easy and delicious pumpkin hummus recipe. The hummus takes less than 10-minutes to whip together and then all you have to do is carve a mini pumpkin, add the hummus and sprinkle on a few pumpkin seeds. Voila! You’ll have a party perfect and crowd-pleasing dip in no time.
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, which is a fun way to mix things up.
Hummus and chips go together like peas and carrots and if you have a bit of extra time to make them, these whole grain homemade chips are pretty amazing.
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
