Holy Hole in a Bagel Batman that Hummus is TASTY!

8 Feb

I like hummus, but when I buy it from the shop I always want to add lots of things for more and more flavour. This recipe makes a spicy, sweet, nutty and very flavoursome dip.

You’ll need…

Fresh Pumpkin









400 grams chopped pumpkin

2 teaspoons cumin seeds

1 teaspoon dried Rosemary

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

1 teaspoon chili powder/chili flakes (or more to taste)

You can leave out the salt - or any of these if you don't like them!










3-4 tbsps EVO oil

1 tin chickpeas (drained)

1/2 cup tahini (unhulled sesame)

juice of one lemon

2 garlic cloves

First, Roast the Pumpkin…

Put the pumpkin in a baking dish and sprinkle with the spices and toss with olive oil to coat.

Roast in a hot oven for about 20 minutes or until well cooked.

Don't leave any of the spices in the pan!









Blend it all together…

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor (or get out your masher and roll up your sleeves) and process to a paste. You may need to scrape down the sides once or twice.

I like mine with a little texture, not completely smooth, but this is a matter of personal preference, if you like it very smooth you may wish to add a little water (just a couple of tablespoons).
