Someone sent me a PM asking for my pumpkin hummus recipe and thought it would be good to share it with all of you, so here it is:  (I also added it to the recipe data base)

Adapted from a recipe found on a calendar:

1 1/2 tsp. Very finely chopped fresh garlic (or more if you love garlic)
1 can (14-15 oz.) organic pumpkin puree
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 - 1/3 cup tahini (sesame paste)
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 - 3 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 - 1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. chili powder
hot pepper to taste (can use hot hungarian paprika) - just a dash

Blend all of above to a smooth paste.  Refrigerate 8 hours or more.

If serving as a party dip, can garnish with chopped pumpkin seeds or chopped walnuts.

-----------

Note: that I put ranges of measurements on the spicy ingredients.  Recommend starting with the lower amount and then add a bit more to your taste. Otherwise this could be too spicy or "strange" for people who don't normally use very many herbs and spices.

Note:  This recipe contains no beans of any kind.  You will be amazed when you eat it, though, because it is so much like a "regular" hummus.

ENJOY - And Happy Holidays to all.

Thank you ginnyTN for this recipe.  sanj... It is delish...made it tonight and loved it...had to tweak it a bit for the hot sauce (a wee bit of cayenne...didn't have hot Hungarian paprika) and the tahini..used ground chia seeds for thickener.   Did half of it with a pureed roasted red pepper and it was awesome too.  Yummilicious.

Debra - Glad you liked it.  I always suggest that people make a recipe as written first and then start tweeking it.  When it is something new to me that is what I do.  And often the recipe as written is so delicious that I don't even play with it - even though I tend to play with about everything when it comes to food......

The orignal recipe did call for cayenne, but A's aren't allowed to have that so I changed it to the hot paprika.  

Actually, as far as I know, and technically speaking, all recipes for hummus have to include tahini Or they may be good but they are "something else spread".  I could be wrong.  It's been known to happen

I have not had a chance to try this out yet as I just finished a batch of bean stuff but it looks good.

I think it would be a blessing especially for O's as they generally have a rather limited quota of beans in the diet.
