Pumpkin and roast garlic hummus

A great way to use up leftover over pumpkin and this recipe combines two of my favourite things–chickpeas and pumpkin!

Happy days.

Not only is this pumpkin and roast garlic hummus super delicious, it’s also really wholesome and healthy–adding some extra fibre and anti-oxidants from the pumpkin.

I love the golden colour of this hummus, which has been enhanced even more by the turmeric. You can spice it up as much as you like, I like adding a generous pinch of chilli flakes.

I love experimenting with new hummus flavours; the options are endless (my favourite; beetroot, edamame, roast peppers, roast carrots, sun-dried tomatoes are all delicious ways to add taste and mix it up a bit).

I think this is really yummy spread onto rye bread and topped with some cherry tomatoes or with crunchy slaw and lots of salad.

Enjoy, love Niki xx
