Our pumpkin hummus is a delicious appetiser that’s best served with breads or crudités.

Ingredients

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the pumpkin, in a single layer, on a baking tray and drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until tender. Set aside for 20 minutes to cool.
  2. Place the pumpkin, chickpeas, garlic and cumin in a food processor until almost smooth. Add the lemon juice and process until well combined.
