Easy Pumpkin Spice Hummus

A Delicious, Vegan Easy Pumpkin Spice Hummus, a delicious fall recipe that’s perfect for gatherings or a healthy vegan snack!

I can’t believe how quickly this year is passing me by. I feel like I was making easter goodies just last week and now I’ve moved onto Halloween decorations, fall recipes and now this healthy vegan snack – Easy Pumpkin Spice Hummus. Tomorrow it’ll feel like Christmas, at this rate!

I definitely think Pumpkin is my all-time favourite Fall ingredient. Not only do they look amazing and come in all shapes and sizes ( which, I love!), But let’s also talk about the genius of the fact that pumpkin can be used for sweet and savoury recipes. Yes, please!

I have to be honest, the ‘fall specials’ that come around in-store around this time of the year always get to me too, because who doesn’t love anything and everything ‘pumpkin spice’… Which is why I have to share this vegan pumpkin spice hummus recipe.

This pumpkin spice hummus is not only vegan, it only uses a few ingredients, is gluten-free and is a super healthy vegan snack and a delicious fall recipe.

How to make the Easy Pumpkin Spice Hummus:

Just like all hummus recipes, this pumpkin hummus is ridiculously easy to make. It’s made up of just 6 ingredients: Chickpeas, pumpkin puree, tahini, pumpkin spice mix, lemon & salt.

PLUS, two of these ingredients are pre-made at home ( although I 100% won’t judge you if you opt for store-bought either!). I just recently posted this recipe for homemade 2-ingredient Tahini. Also, I love to make pumpkin spice mix in bulk so I always have it to hand.

For The Pumpkin spice mix (this will make a big batch, you only need a small portion for this recipe):

  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

The first step to making this pumpkin spice hummus is to prepare the pumpkin puree.

Begin by washing the outside of your pumpkin and then chopping it into wedges.

Using a spoon, scoop out all the stringy flesh and seeds ( The pumpkin seeds can be kept to be roasted too!). At this point preheat your oven to 170C.

Lightly brush the pumpkin slices with the oil and season with salt then bake in the oven till the pumpkin is tender and soft, to touch. This takes around 40 minutes, although check at 30 and go from there.

Leave to cool slightly and then blend in a blender, till smooth. I left the skin on as it was soft, however, you can peel it off, if wanted.

Once this pumpkin puree mix is ready, it’s as simple as adding the rest of the hummus ingredients into the food processor and blending till smooth.

I then suggest serving this as a platter with lots of fresh, raw veggies. I’ve suggested using a selection of peppers and carrots. I also used some black olives to make this cheeky Lion King inspired Lion face hummus platter.
