I made this recipe on Halloween for my family and served it with high quality store bought pita chips and fresh yellow and orange peppers. I used a bit less spice and it was still very flavorful. The pumpkin is light and the perfect touch. Easy to make and a crowd pleaser!

Took this to work to share served with pitas and veggies. Everyone loved it! The pumpkin adds a sweetness to the hummus so we all voted to make this healthy dish again but to add more garlic and lemon and to decrease the cayenne by half. Thanks Evie in L.A.

This dip is marvelous! They sell one exactely like this in the Central Market in Adelaide and charge $25 a kilo. This is exactely the same!! Yum! I used fresh pumpkin and steamed it although roasting is better. Thanks so much for posting!

Easy, delicious and healthy! I didnt have any tahini so I substituted 2 Tb of sesame oil and only used 1 Tb of olive oil. The family devoured it as a hoilday appetizer. It is spicy though so I would be hesitant to increase the amount of cayenne.

How cool is that? You can use pumpkin to make hummous!! I used pumpkin that I had frozen after Halloween last year. I'd suggest adding salt as well as everything else. Maybe even more cayenne and cumin!!
