Directions See How It's Made
- In a food processor, combine the tahini, yogurt or sour cream, lemon juice, cumin, olive oil, salt, cinnamon, garlic, pumpkin, and garbanzo beans. Process until smooth.
- Add parsley and briefly mix until blended.
- Spoon the hummus into a serving bowl. Sprinkle with pepitas/toasted pumpkin seed kernels (optional, but very tasty!).
- Note: can be made the day ahead and refrigerated.
- Note: Pepitas are a popular ingredient in Mexican cuisine and are also roasted and served as a snack. Marinated and roasted, they are an autumn seasonal favorite in the rural United States, as well as a commercially produced and distributed packaged snack, like sunflower seeds, available year-round. They can be found in many grocery and health food stores.
