Pumpkin Spice Hummus
Serves 8

Ingredients

½ cup canned pumpkin puree
½ cup canned chickpeas, drained or equivalent cooked chickpeas
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
⅛ cup lemon juice or juice from half large lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
⅛ teaspoon ground clove
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1–2 tablespoons water

Directions

Using a food processor, blend all ingredients until the desired consistency is reached and hummus is well-combined. Add more water to make hummus less thick or more salt to taste, if desired.

Tip: This hummus looks lovely with a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top and few pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds) on top as garnish!
