Pumpkin Hummus

We love our hummus here at Good Clean Food! 

Traditional Middle Eastern hummus is made from chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Using this basic recipe it’s fun to play with different flavor combinations and introduce seasonal ingredients to the mix. Pumpkin puree offers a delightful kick of fall flavors to this versatile dip, and is loaded with health promoting nutrients.

Pumpkin, a winter squash, is high in beta-carotene and vitamin C. Both of these nutrients help to strengthen the immune system and give your skin that healthy, youthful glow. The beta-carotene found in pumpkin (like carrots) is also important for eye health. Pumpkin is a also great source of fiber, with three grams in every cup!



  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned, we like the 365 brand)

  • 3 tablespoons tahini

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (plus extra to taste)

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric

  • Olive oil, for garnish

  • Raw pumpkin seeds, for garnish

  • Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy and smooth. Adjust salt, paprika, and lemon juice to taste.

  2. Scoop the pumpkin hummus into a bowl and garnish with olive oil, raw pumpkin seeds, and fresh parsley. Serve with crackers or raw vegetables.
