Pumpkin hummus

Scorrere verso il basso

Pumpkin hummus is another version of classic chickpea hummus. This time I used pumpkin to give a little sweetness to one of my favorite side dishes. Pumpkin goes perfectly with chickpeas, paprika (both sweet and smoked) and the heat of the chili powder. If you do not have ready to use pumpkin puree no problem on foodohfood you can find recipe that tells you how to make homemade pumpkin puree.
