Pumpkin Hummus {Tailgating Tuesday}

So I realize that my Tailgating Tuesday posts have been heavily food-focused. I apologize for this, but let’s face it: the food is my favorite part of a tailgate. {Well, and the beverages, obvs, but mostly the food.} I have a non-food Tailgating Tuesday post planned for next week, so if you don’t like it, you can check back then. 

But if food is your thing, have I got a treat for you today. 

Learn how to make homemade pumpkin hummus -- perfect for tailgates and fall parties!

Pumpkin. Hummus. 

Aww yeah.

As I’ve mentioned before, I loves me some hummus. And in the fall, like every other human being on Pinterest, I loves me some pumpkin recipes. When I saw a recipe for pumpkin hummus in the October Food Network Magazine, I knew I had to try to make it for myself. 

Learn how to make homemade pumpkin hummus -- perfect for tailgates and fall parties!

I didn’t really follow the Food Network recipe, though. I started off with the basic recipe that I used for my Cilantro-Lime Hummus and through trial and error came up with something that is totally delicious. Try it and let me know what you think!

Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup tahini {sesame paste}
  2. Juice of 1-2 lemon
  3. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  4. 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 cup pumpkin puree
  9. 1 15-oz cans garbanzo beans {also called chickpeas}, drained and rinsed
  10. 2-3 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. 1. Combine tahini and lemon juice in the bowl of a food processor. Process for approx. 1 minute. Scrape down sides of bowl, then process for another minute, or until tahini becomes thicker and lighter in color.
  2. 2. Add olive oil, garlic, pumpkin pie spice, cumin and salt and process for 30 seconds to a minute.
  3. 3. Add pumpkin and half of the garbanzo beans and process for 1 minute. Add remaining garbanzo beans and process for an additional 2 minutes or until thick and smooth. If hummus is too thick, slowly add in water while food processor is running until it gets to the desired consistency.
  4. 4. Once desired consistency is reached, add in cilantro and process for an additional 30-45 seconds.
  5. Notes
  6. The number of limes you use will depend on the amount of juice they have. You are looking for approximately 3-4 tablespoons of lime juice. Also, I love cilantro, so I added a ton. If you don't like it as much, feel free to use less.

    I personally am not crazy about pumpkin but I do love my vegan pumpkin donuts. However, I’m not above trying something new because when I was a kid I was given pumpkin in pie form only. And I love hummus! Thanks for the recipe.
