Why I Love This Recipe

Its full of flavor and you can pair it with many different things.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 heaping cup roasted butternut squash
1 garlic clove
1½ cups cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
¼ cup tahini
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon cayenne, less if sensitive to spice
½ teaspoon sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
¼ cup water, or as needed
freshly ground black pepper
pomegranate arils, feta, parsley, and microgreens, for topping
pita, crackers and/or veggies, for serving


1.)In a food processor, combine the roasted squash, garlic, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, cumin, coriander, cayenne, and sea salt.

2.) With the blade running, drizzle in the olive oil. Add water, as need, to blend to a smooth consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings. (Note: this is a bit spicy before you add the olive oil - the olive oil tones down the spice.)

3.) Scoop the hummus into a serving bowl and top with pomegranate arils, feta, parsley, microgreens, and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve with toasted pita, crackers, and/or chopped veggies.
