Pumpkin hummus

Submitted by: NOMEDEPLUME

Introduction

I'm not a big pumpkin fan but this works well and is a great after school protein snack with pita bread, rice crackers (especially salsa flavoured ones) or wholemeal crackers.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 x 410g can or 1-2 cups drained and rinsed chickpeas
    1.5 cups cooked pumpkin
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1-2 tsp sesame oil (or 2 Tbsp sesame seeds)
    Juice of 2 lemons
    pinch cayenne or chilli powder
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Makes 3-4 cups - 8 servings

Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor adding water or chicken stock to form a smooth, creamy textured dip. Adjust seasonings to taste.

If you prefer your pumpkin warm (as I do), heat for 20 seconds in the microwave before serving.
