Pumpkin Hummus / #PUMPKINWEEK

I am starting to get some ideas together for special food and drinks I would like to serve during the holidays. Every year I like to serve something different than the year before. The only exception is that I also make whatever was the favorite from the year. This holiday season I will definitely be serving this Pumpkin Hummus. It is the perfect appetizer! The flavors are amazing together and this appetizer is not difficult to make at all. It has a pretty, festive color, and I served it with baked tortilla chips for something different!


Pumpkin Hummus
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 3/4 cups dry Garbanzo Beans
15 ounces Pumpkin Puree  
5 ounces Lemon Juice
1/3  cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup Tahini Paste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper
Salt  To Taste



Place the beans in a pot and cover with cold water, Let stand for 8 hours or overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse beans, and place back in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refrigerate beans and the liquid. Once beans and liquid are cold, drain the beans, but keep the liquid.
Place the beans in the blender and add 1/2 cup of reserved water. Blend until smooth.
Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. Blend until smooth. You may need to add some more reserved water if needed.

Serve with crackers or tortilla chips!
Thank you for stopping by today!
