This savory pumpkin hummus is deliciously creamy and so easy to prep! It pairs perfectly with baked pita chips, crackers, toast, veggies, and even works great as a spread. You’re going to want to serve this tasty, fall-flavored dip for Thanksgiving and other gatherings this fall.
Fall is probably my favorite season and I’m so excited to share all of my favorite fall-inspired recipes with you! I know that I tend to go a little overboard with pumpkin recipes this time of year, but hear me out.
This pumpkin hummus dip is worth it. I promise. It’s so delicious. Just get ready to experience a creamy, flavorful, perfectly spiced dip that goes well with so many things and can be whipped up in under 10 minutes.
Ingredients In Pumpkin Hummus:
This dip starts with garbanzo beans (or commonly called chickpeas) and pumpkin, which are puréed with lemon, tahini, garlic, olive oil, salt, cumin and cayenne. For the finishing touch, pumpkin seeds get stirred into the dip.
You can definitely use canned pumpkin purée to make this dip, but fresh is so much more flavorful! I’ve got step-by-step instructions, so you can easily make your own pumpkin purée.
How to Make Pumpkin Hummus
I love experimenting with new ways to use pumpkin. And alongside all of the pumpkin treats, I like to have some fall-flavored appetizers and snacks to serve. This savory pumpkin hummus dip was just what I was craving and couldn’t have turned out more delicious. As an added plus, it’s also a super easy recipe.
There’s no cooking involved, and all you need to do is blend everything together in a food processor — canned chickpeas, pumpkin purée, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and spices. Then, stir in the pumpkin seeds. The texture is smooth and creamy, easily scooped using crackers or other dipping options, and is mainly savory with a slight sweetness coming from the pumpkin purée.
I mean, just look at that pumpkin-y goodness! I want to dive right in.
What to Serve With Pumpkin Hummus:
So many things go perfect with hummus. I also love using it as a spread in wraps and sandwiches or on toasted bread. Here’s some ideas to get you started:
- Pita bread or chips
- Raw or roasted veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, sliced red peppers, grape tomatoes, radishes and even jicama
- Crackers or chips
