Pumpkin Hummus

Ingredients:

8 oz dry garbanzo beans
4 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 – 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1/4 cup tahini paste
the juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin

Directions:

1. Rinse beans and check for any bad beans or stones and remove. Add water to beans and let soak 4 – 6 hours or overnight. Place beans and their water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Let simmer over medium low heat until tender, about an hour.

2. Add cooked beans and their water to a food processor. Add canned pumpkin puree, tahini paste, lemon juice and cumin. Pulse until combined. Then turn on food processor and stream in olive oil. Blend until hummus is creamy.

Note: My food processor held everything, but you might want to do this in two batches, depending on the size of your food processor.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Ingredients
fresh pumpkin seeds
salt
olive oil

Method
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove seeds from pumpkin. Rinse in a colander well, removing all stringy pumpkin parts attached to the seeds.

2.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet with olive oil. Spread the seeds in a single layer on the sheet. Roast for 10 – 15 minutes, or just until lightly browned.

3.  Be sure to keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn.

4.  Let cool and sprinkle with salt.

    Not only is this recipe completely unique and creative, but it presents just perfectly! I’ve been wanting to hollow out a pumpkin to use as a serving dish, and now I have a great reason to do so! Thanks for sharing a great fall recipe, and a wonderfully innovative way to serve it!

    I love this idea! It’s perfect for the season. The addition of the puree and the cumin sounds so intriguing and how cute is that in your little white pumpkin?

    Excellent idea, makes for a good marriage, love the presentation as well. Put it in the blender, add some stock and you’ll have a great soup too I bet.
