Roasted Pumpkin Hummus

For tonight's dinner party I made some pumpkin hummus. It was very simple, and although it didn't taste much like pumpkins and tasted more like hummus, is was very good. I only used half a small pumpkin for this batch, and as you can see in the photo, the other half was the festive dish. The hummus had just a hint of orange coloring (I don't know if you can tell that in the photo).

I was going to make it into a jack-o-lantern face, but I got rushed at the last minute, and spent too much time chatting with a friend. Here is what I did:

  • One small pumpkin, roasted in (seeded) halves
  • One can chickpeas
  • 2 Tbs tahini
  • 1/3-1/2 c. olive oil
Directions: With one half of the pumpkin, remove cooked chunks, and place into food processor. Add remaining ingredients to processor and combine, adding more olive oil for a smoother consistency. When everything is blended and smooth, place hummus into the other half of the pumpkin. Serve with pita, chips, pretzels, crackers...
