This Pumpkin Hummus Recipe is Perfect for Holiday Parties



  • Two 15-ounce cans garbanzo beans
  • One 15-ounce can pumpkin purée
  • 5 ounces lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • Water (as needed for texture)


Rinse garbanzo beans under running water to remove excess salt. Place the beans and a splash of water in a blender, and purée to a smooth paste. Add pumpkin, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Purée again until smooth. This is a fairly sweet purée; serve it with crackers or vegetables.
