2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
½ medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
3 ½ cups water
1 ½ cups red lentils
½ cup pumpkin puree
¼ cup white miso
¼ cup lemon juice
~ 1 Tbsp sea salt, more to taste
red pepper flakes and ground pepper, to taste
chopped fresh cilantro for garnish, optional

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the oil.

Add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until onion softens, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add the garlic, sweet potato, cumin and paprika and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, until spices are fragrant.

Stir in water and lentils and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until lentils and sweet potatoes are soft, 15 to 18 minutes.

Let cool.

In a blender or food processor, purée red lentil-sweet potato mixture with pumpkin, white miso, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Taste and adjust seasoning.

Put hummus in a serving bowl.

Drizzle with a bit of additional olive oil and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
