For me, pumpkin never gets old. I’m still flying high on the pumpkin kick after Pumpkin Whoopie Pies and Pumpkin Soup and I’m still not all pumpkin’ed out! Nope! I’m finding more and more pumpkin recipes that I just can’t resist making! Latest and greatest pumpkin obsession?
It’s a really fun and delicious change to standard humus. Follow a simple and traditional humus recipe and just add a cup of pumpkin purée as well as a few spices and maple syrup to really enhance the pumpkin-esque flavor of the humus.
It’s so yummy! So yummy!!
With just a hint of sweetness and a punch of pumpkin I can think of a zillion occasions to make this….

- Work Potluck
- Light Dinner

Pumpkin Humus is amazing any time because Pumpkin Humus is supercalafragelisticexpialadocious good!!
When it comes to making really creamy, luscious humus you need to remove the peel on the garbanzo beans and purée in the food processor for 5-8 minutes. To remove the skin, soak the canned beans in water and rub them between your hands. The peels will come off and float to the top. Just remove those and continue rubbing them until all the peels are removed. It only takes a few minutes and I promise it’s worth the effort!
Enjoy Pumpkin Humus with a wedge of pita bread or carrot sticks!
