This was so good! If you like pumpkin and you like hummus, its a no brainer. Easy to make and my kids loved it too! I served this at a family event and everyone asked for the recipe. Serve with warm pita bread cut into small triangles and/or veggies.
2 cans garbanzo beans, rinsed & drained
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 TBS Olive Oil
2 TBS water
3 cloves garlic (more or less to taste, I used minced)
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Salt & Pepper to taste (I used about 1/8 teaspoon of each)
Dash of House Seasoning (I used Paula Dean House Seasoning)
3/4 Can of Pumpkin (more or less to taste)
How to make:
Put the beans, lemon juice, water, olive oil and garlic in a food processor. Process well. If it seems to0 dry or clumpy, add a bit more water or olive oil. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. You can add more S&P, pumpkin or garlic if you like.
If you don't like pumpkin, follow the recipe but you can sub in toasted sesame seeds, roasted red peppers, onion, sundried tomatoes, etc .
