Pumpkin Hummus

By: Dr. Sarah Oh
This hummus gets an extra boost of beta-carotene from the pumpkin, making it the perfect eye-healthy snack to dip your veggies or crackers in.


  • Two 15-oz cans of chickpeas
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (more if you like it extra garlicky)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Optional ¼ - ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Blend chickpeas with lemon, garlic, tahini, and olive oil in a food processor.
  2.  Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth.
  3.  If the mixture is too thick, add water 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
  4. Serve with veggies or crackers for dipping.
