  • 15 oz pumpkin puree
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)

  • liquid from can of chickpeas I used roughly 1/3 cup
  1. In the base of a 7 cup food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine the pumpkin, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, cumin, coriander and 1/4 cup of chickpea liquid. Process for one minute.

  2. Add the chickpeas, blend for 1 minute on low, gradually adding in 1-2 tablespoons extra liquid reserved from the can of chickpeas through the shoot in the food processor lid.
  3. Scrape down sides of processor, then blend for 1-2 minutes on high, adding in more liquid if you’d like it thinner. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  4. Serve with veggies or crackers. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Freeze for up to 3 months.

How to make pumpkin hummus

I’ve found that the trick to making super smooth hummus with canned chickpeas is a two step approach:

  1. Blend up everything except for the chickpeas for 1-2 minutes- for this pumpkin hummus recipe, that means the pumpkin, garlic, tahini, lime juice, spices, and some of the liquid from the can of chickpeas.
  2. Add in the chickpeas last and blend again- 2-3 more minutes, scraping down the sides of the food processor as needed.

You can also serve this pumpkin hummus with:

  • rice cakes
  • sandwiches & pitas
  • wraps
  • on salad/Buddha bowls
  • in bento boxes with pitas & fillings  Serves 12

Can I make this pumpkin hummus in my blender? I do not have the greatest blender, so it doesn’t work in mine. However I have seen people use a high powered blender such as a Vitamix to make hummus, so it may be possible.

How long does this hummus recipe last? This pumpkin hummus can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. You can also freeze it for up to 3 months.
