Roasted Pumpkin Hummus with Mini Breadsticks

Roasted Pumpkin Hummus with Mini Breadsticks

English Halloween Recipe

60 Mins
  • Mini breadsticks and pitta chips - to serve
  • 400g of chickpeas
  • 1 small pumpkin
  • Olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • ½ a juiced lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper

STEP 1

Cut the top off of the pumpkin, about two-thirds of the way up. Remove all of the seeds and flesh out of the pumpkin and the lid.

STEP 2

Heat your oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas mark 6. Cut the pumpkin flesh into pieces and place it in a roasting tin with the garlic and a good amount of oil. Season to taste, and bake for 45 minutes until extremely soft and tender. Leave to cool.

STEP 3

Place the roasted pumpkin into a food processor with any juices from the roasting tin and the garlic. Add the lemon juice, chickpeas and tahini. Season with salt and blend to a paste, and add a little extra oil if it is too thick.

STEP 4

To serve, scoop the hummus back into the pumpkin and serve with the peppers, pitta chips and breadsticks for dipping.
