Maple-Pumpkin Hummus

Prep time:  5 mins
Total time:  5 mins

Serves: 2 cups


  • 1 tbs. sesame seeds
  • 2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1¾ cups chickpeas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbs. Coombs Family Farms Grade A Dark Color, Robust Taste Maple Syrup
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbs. water, if needed


In a high-powered blender or food processor, blend the sesame seeds, olive oil, and chickpeas. (Note: Grind the seeds first in a spice grinder or coffee grinder for smoothest results.) Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, and salt. Blend until smooth. Add the water if you want it a little thinner. Taste the hummus and adjust the seasonings. This isn’t an exact science, so you’ll want to play with the proportions to get a flavor you love. Transfer the mixture to a serving dish and serve with crackers, tortilla chips, or vegetable strips. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
