Pumpkin Hummus

I love hummus a LOT! I make hummus a LOT at home too … I guess my love for hummus comes from growing up in the middle east and eating lots and lots of it quite frequently. I like making it at home  because of the authentic flavour that supermarket kinds tend to miss … It always humors me seeing the variety of hummus at the supermarkets … aubergine, carrots, spinach type hummus … I like their taste but  have always stuck to my authentic original kind of hummus. My husband had bought a fairly large size pumpkin a few weeks ago, after using it in  few recipes, I still a good chunk left, so I decided to make some Pumpkin hummus …. After making it, I decided to use it in a meal idea, so this post has TWO recipes

Summary

    Ingredients

    2 cups cooked pumpkin
    1.5 tbsps tahini
    1 clove garlic
    1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
    to taste Salt
    Drizzle of Olive Oil

    Steps

    1. Put all of the above mentioned ingredients excluding olive oil in a blender, and blend until its smooth
    2. Pour the hummus into a bowl and mix it up with some olive oil. Serve it with some pita bread and meat OR pita chips and crackers ORRRRRRRRRRR do what I did! Make Pumpkin Quesadillas
    3. We are a quesadilla family, so you are sure to find a pack of tortillas in the fridge … take a tortilla, put a generous amount of hummus, add a decent amount of cheddar, fold lengthwise and place it on a well greased griddle
    4. Give it a couple of minutes on each side and once brown, remove from the heat and cut into triangles … The pumpkin hummus will ooze out, so be gentle as you slice through the quesadillas
    5. Garnish with coriander leaves or spring onion
    6. SERVE immediately
