How to make it
(This is a summary with step by step photos, full recipe measurements and instructions are in the recipe card below.)
Gather your ingredients. If you don’t have the individual spices on hand, you may sub for pumpkin pie spice mix.
Add all the ingredients, except the water to your food processor and pulse until combined. Then add the water, 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. (photos 1-2)
Garnish with chocolate chips, a drizzle of maple syrup and/or a sprinkle of brown sugar, if you’d like.
Then serve with all your favourite dippers.
What to serve with it?
Serve your pumpkin spice hummus with a variety of fruit, crackers, and/or sweet treats. Some of my favourites are:
- apple slices
- graham crackers
Store your pumpkin pie hummus in a sealed container in your fridge for up to 4 days. If working ahead, skip the garnish until ready to serve.
You may freeze your hummus for up to 3 months in a freezer safe, air tight container.
- If you have a premixed pumpkin spice blend (and don’t have the individual seasonings) you may use 2 teaspoons of the mix instead.
- Start processing without the water at first, so you can make your dip as thick or thin as desired.
- Use no salt added chickpeas. If you don’t have no salt added, skip the salt called for in the recipe.
