Savory Pumpkin Spice Hummus
This Savory Pumpkin Spice Hummus is a delicious and creamy seasonal pumpkin hummus recipe. It comes together in 10 minutes and makes a wonderful Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving or Fall appetizer and snack.
Say hello to the perfect Fall dip! This pumpkin spice hummus combines the best of the pumpkin and hummus worlds to create a flavorful pumpkin hummus spread.
This pumpkin hummus isn’t a sweet dessert type of hummus. It is savory with tahini, cumin and garlic seasoning. But it also has a hint of maple syrup which brings out the pumpkin, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon flavors in the recipe.
It’s REALLY good and my new favorite Fall hummus.
Tis the season for pumpkin recipes! If you can’t tell, I’m all about all types of pumpkin recipes from pumpkin cake to pumpkin stuffed dates to pumpkin white russians.
So I figured why not make a pumpkin hummus to add to the list?
Why I love this hummus recipe
This pumpkin hummus is…
- creamy and fluffy
- savory yet you can still taste the pumpkin (thanks to the maple syrup, cinnamon and pumpkin spice)
- easy to make and comes together in 10 minutes
- a great appetizer for Fall, Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving
- canned pumpkin– organic pumpkin puree is best
- canned chickpeas
- tahini– this gives hummus it’s classic taste
- olive oil– extra virgin olive oil adds a nice taste to the hummus
- lemon juice– fresh squeezed!
- salt– sea salt works great here
- garlic powder– this adds to the savory aspect of the dish and is quick to add to the blender
- black pepper– use as much or as little as you want
- ground cumin– a must for flavoring hummus
- pumpkin pie spice– you can buy this or make your own
- maple syrup– pure maple syrup is best
- cinnamon-Ceylon cinnamon has a great taste
How to make it
It’s simple! Put everything into a blender or food processor and mix until smooth!
I use a blender because it is bigger than a food processor.
Taste and then tweak your hummus with spices, tahini, lemon juice, or maple syrup to your taste. ( I like the recipe as is, but feel free to make it your own).
Tips and tricks
- Don’t add cold water to this recipe: cold water is known to make hummus fluffy but because pumpkin already has a higher water content, adding water makes it too watery.
- Use organic canned pumpkin
- Add more maple syrup to make it sweeter
- Add less to make it less sweet: but if you add less, then you won’t taste the pumpkin flavor as much, just FYI
- Make your own pumpkin spice if you don’t have it: to make yours just combine ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. I like this recipe for making your own.
What to eat with pumpkin hummus
- pita bread
- pita chips
- Paleo “Everything but the Bagel” Crackers
- red peppers
- apples slices
Oh and don’t forget about toppings you can add on top of your hummus such as: pumpkin seeds, pomegranate seeds, olive oil, and spices.
Yes! You can use a can of white beans instead.
It will last 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
No, it is a savory hummus. There is added maple syrup only because that gives it a pumpkin taste. Without the maple syrup, you can’t taste that this hummus has pumpkin in it.
You can use almond butter but it won’t have the same taste.
