Pumpkin Hummus and Pita Chips

I love me some hummus. I actually make hummus a lot but this is by far my favorite recipe. 


  • Hummus 
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 of lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup tahini paste
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • salt to taste

  • Directions

    Drain the garbanzo beans, reserving the cooking liquid. Place the beans and 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking liquid into a blender, and puree until a smooth paste forms. Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Add salt to taste. Leave overnight to the the flavors to blend together. 

For anyone needing a blender the Ninja is the greatest thing I have ever owned!
