  • 1 tbs sesame seeds
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 3/4 cups chickpeas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbs pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs . water if needed


  • In a high-powered blender or food processor, blend the sesame seeds, olive oil, and chickpeas. (Note: Grind the seeds first in a spice grinder or coffee grinder for smoothest results.)
  • Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, and salt. Blend until smooth. Add the water if you want it a little thinner.
  • Taste the hummus and adjust the seasonings. This isn’t an exact science, so you’ll want to play with the proportions to get a flavor you love.
  • Transfer the mixture to a serving dish and serve with crackers, tortilla chips, or vegetable strips. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
