This stuff is soooo good! In 15 minutes you can have fresh, homemade pumpkin hummus to serve to your family and friends.
1 can garbanzo beans drained, save the juice. (I cooked my own garbanzo beans, 1 3/4 cups beans. Cover with water, let stand an hour or over night. Bring beans to a boil, reduce to medium heat and cook for 2 hours.)
1 (15 ounce) can 100% pumpkin puree
5 fluid ounces lemon juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup tahini paste
3 cloves garlic minced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon allspice
salt to taste if desired.
Place beans and 1/2 cup the reserved liquid into a blender and puree until smooth. Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
Cover and puree until smooth. Slowly if using a food processor pour in the olive oil to achieve a smooth Consistency. Season to taste with salt if desired. ENJOY
