What ingredients are in savory pumpkin hummus?

  • Chickpeas: Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are the main ingredient for hummus. They are packed with plant-based protein, fiber, and nutrients.
  • Pumpkin: Pumpkin puree, or canned pumpkin, is the star of this recipe. It provides the tasty autumn flavor and unique orange hue. Pumpkin is loaded with vitamin A, making it great for skin health.
  • Olive oil: I recommend using a high-quality extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor.
  • Tahini: Tahini is a common ingredient found in hummus recipes. It helps to create a creamy texture and it contains various nutrients.
  • Lemon juice: Just a dash for acidity.
  • Spices: This pumpkin hummus is flavored with garlic + ground cumin, paprika, and a pinch of cinnamon.
