Recipe Of The Week – Roasted Pumpkin Hummus
Pumpkin is naturally sweet, so really hits the spot for those struggling with sugar cravings. Enjoy with pitta bread slices of vegetable crudités.
- Preheat the oven 180C
- Combine the pumpkin, cumin and olive oil. Transfer the pumpkin pieces to a baking tray along with the garlic bulb. Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges of the garlic and pumpkin are beginning to turn golden (the garlic may need to be removed from the tray before this to avoid burning)
- Place the pumpkin and garlic into a food processor with the lemon juice, chickpeas and tahini paste and blitz until smooth – add a little more olive oil if necessary
- Scoop into a serving dish and sprinkle with roasted pumpkin seeds
