Less than 10 minutes and you’ll be on your way to Spiced Pumpkin Hummus yumminess! All versions of hummus are pretty easy to whip up and this one is no exception! Plus, it’s so flavourful, it’ll be devoured in no time at all. Chickpeas are combined with pure pumpkin purée and iconic fall spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove for quite the tasty treat. Then there’s some chili flakes for that extra kiss of heat. It’s SO creamy too. You’ll never buy pre-made hummus again!
Hey guys! Happy Halloween! What’s up? How was your weekend? I had to pick up more Halloween treats this weekend because I only had about half left? I think there is someone sneaking into my pantry and eating chips……..
Anywho, seriously though, I think deep down, like kinda subconsiously, I buy lots just because I know I’m totally gonna be into it before Halloween. Are you more of a potato chip or candy/chocolate person? For me, I definitely sway more on the potato chip lovin’ side. Though, as a child I wasn’t that way. I remember years ago sometimes the potato chip companies would have little prizes in their chip bags, probably like a sticker or something. I remember just getting the potato chips just to get that dang sticker and would toss the chips away. What was wrong with me? Wait, don’t answer that. You could be here all day ?
Are you staying home giving out the treats to the trick-or-treaters or will you be out with your little ones? I love seeing the kids come to the door in their costumes. Though, the door bell ringing drives furry child cray cray! Is your furry child bothered by the bell at all? Tips? Anyone. Please ?
We usually have something quick and easy for dinner on Halloween ’cause there’s no time to tend to the oven while there’s a constant ring of the door bell. I could quite possibly make a meal out of this Spiced Pumpkin Hummus. I’ve been using pure pumpkin purée A LOT lately. I’m trying to pumpkinify (<——yes, that’s a word – just go with it) everything.
The thing is those cans of pumpkin purée are HUGE! The one we buy around here is 24 oz! That’s a whole lotta pumpkin so anytime I break open a can to use in a recipe, I’m always left with extra?. After you try this Spiced Pumpkin Hummus, you should also try these delicious pumpkin recipes here and here.
For this Spiced Pumpkin Hummus, you basically you just put the ingredients in a food processor and way to go. Serve up and enjoy. Can’t get much easier, can it? I like to drizzle an extra bit of good quality olive oil on top of mine, garish with some salted pumpkin seeds and a few extra chili flakes. You know, for when I’m wearing my fancy pants ?
When I originally made this Spiced Pumpkin Hummus, I used garam masala. Garam masala is basically a mix of Indian spices. The components could vary slightly, but they typically include the spices that I used in this recipe, like cinnamon and nutmeg. When I went to make this for the blog, I could not find it! Ahhhh! No worries, I just put the individual spices in here and it turned out deliciously all the same?
This Spiced Pumpkin Hummus is absolutely perfect with your favourite corn or pita chips, but would also be lovely as a spread on a sandwich or wrap. It will be your new go-to hummus for fall. Speaking of which, can you believe that tomorrow is November 1st? Where did the time go? I’m already starting to think of recipes for the holidays! More to come on that soon, so stay tuned ?
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon 🙂 And be kind to those trick or treaters. No raisins, k ? ?
