I will admit it; I am not a huge fan of pumpkin, but I am a giant fan of hummus. Knowing that the pumpkin everything season is upon us, and I just happened to have some pureed pumpkin in my freezer from last year, I decided to make some pumpkin hummus because, hey, maybe I could learn to like pumpkin if I married it to one of my favorite foods.

This pumpkin hummus took me a minute to get right. first, it was too thick and would have made awesome pumpkin falafels, but I was trying to make hummus and so it just wasn’t the right consistency. I also wanted it to taste like pumpkin but not be over-powering, as I wasn’t sure I would even like it. Let me just say, I loved it! I think this may be one way I can enjoy antioxidant rich pumpkin!

Through trial and error, I learned that in order to get the right consistency, you need to peel off the membrane on each chickpea. This is a time consuming process and honestly, was quite tedious. I peeled them off one by one and then I decided to check and see if there is an easier way online. Sure enough, America’s Test Kitchen has a great video for peeling the membrane away. (Wish I would have seen this first!)

When you are done with your pumpkin hummus, you can garnish it with a little bit of palm oil (make sure it is sustainably sourced!) and paprika!
