Pumpkin hummus is a great idea for Halloween party and all the other kitchen creations of the fall. Pumpkin season is in bloom, so it wouldn’t be possible for hummus to go without it 🙂 And because (almost) everyone loves hummus, it would work great also as a snack for guests dressed in scary costumes and drinking bloody drinks at the Halloween party.
Such a hummus not only would contain great taste values, but would also make the gloomy weather outside which stayed with us for the last few days go away for a while. Even my cats don’t fancy their walks that much and tend to choose lazy lounging in front of the fireplace instead.
When I eat hummus, I have an impression of all my problems are separated from me – as if I were behind a magic glass which isolates and protects me from them. Isn’t that wonderful? What is more, nice and full tummy gives me so much energy and motivation that nothing can scare me! It seems literally magical!
So, up we go and make some hummus?
- 200g chickpeas, dry (or 3 cans)
- 2 cloves garlic
- 5 tbs tahini
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 glass pumpkin puree
- 50 ml ice-cold water
- 1 tbs olive
- generous pinch of salt and pepper
Soak the chickpeas overnight, change the water in the morning and cook until soft (you can also skip the soking and cooking and go straight for canned).
Add all the ingredients into the blender and mix until smooth. Add more spices if needed.
Pour olive over the paste, sprinkle with chili flakes or paprika powder.
