Pumpkin Hummus Recipe
Serves: 32 person(s)
The dip has the familiar tahini and garlic taste of traditional hummus, but lacks the slight density of the usual chickpeas. Itís light, flavorful and delicious. I omitted the extra teaspoon of olive oil called for in the recipe, since I felt that the tahini had the oil content well-covered. It makes a fairly large batch, but will store well for a few days in the fridge, if it lasts that long.

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (lime will work, too)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper
  • 2 cups pumpkin, canned
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed

Directions: In a food processor, combine all ingredients and puree until very smooth. Add a bit of extra lemon juice if the mixture is too thick to blend thoroughly. Makes about 2 cups.
