Pumpkin Hummus Dip

Pumpkin Hummus Dip @diethood

If by some chance you catch me watching an NFL game, it’s probably because the Chicago Bears are playing. However, sometimes I make the mistake in watching the Packers win, or better yet, lose! *Hi Cheeseheads!* 😉

But I am so glad I tuned in this past Monday because I got to see that “Hail Mary” pass. This was the one and only time that I stood behind the Packers. I mean, come on! It was clearly in the hands of the defender; I couldn’t believe that they awarded Tate with a touchdown.

Dear fill-in Refs,

Glad you are out and looking for another job.

Thank goodness I had this pumpkin hummus dip to get me through it all.

By the way, repeat after me, DA BEARS!

Pumpkin Hummus Dip @diethood

When you think of pumpkin, you probably think of pies, muffins, even lattes. In other words, you think of pumpkin as something sweet. A dessert of sorts. Allow me to introduce you to the other side of pumpkin. Pumpkin puree with chickpeas, yogurt, and parmesan cheese. And lime juice. And garlic. All put through your food processor and done in 5 minutes. Cut up some dipping veggies, layer a bunch of crackers, take a seat on the couch and dip away as you watch the next football game. Or Real Housewives of Wherever marathon – my guilty pleasure.

ENJOY!

  1. I LOVE this twist on pumpkin. Hummus?! Love it!

    My husband goes back and forth between being a Packers and Vikings fan. He LOVED the year when Brett Favre did awesome with the Vikings! Since then, he hasn’t had a whole lot of interest in either.

    Thanks for the awesome recipe, as always!

  2. I got so excited when I saw this. I always had thought of pumpkin as usually sweet too until I made a soup with it that had spices like cumin and chile pepper and loved it-so I’ve been on the lookout for savory pumpkin goodies…

  3. Yum, Kate! I was telling my mother last night how I have to head to TJ’s to pick up many cans of pumpkin puree for all the cooking and baking I want to do this season 🙂 Well, let’s hope time permits as school 33 miles away Monday through Thursday is already sapping my energy. You’ll be happy to know that I chose Chicago to win this Monday evening!

  4. Mmmm… I love the idea of a savory dip from pumpkin puree!! I bet it was wonderful while you watched your football. Of course I don’t watch sports… so I will be munching on this while watching one of my weepy chick movies. 🙂 Have a great weekend!! ~ Ramona

  5. Hey, are you dishin’ my Packers LOL, I’ll forgive you since you shared this marvelous, autumnal hummus (and agreed with the rest of the world on that catch). I’m adding this to my list of hummus recipes to try…yummy.

  6. Ok, I wanted to hug you after that first paragraph. DA BEARS!

    But you gotta go easy on those poor refs. They didn’t ask to be called on the major league fields. It’s like asking the person in charge of French fries at McDonalds to take over as executive chef at Mario Batali’s restaurant.

    Your dip looks so good. I don’t know if I could deviate from the normal chickpea/tahini hummus, but that would tempt me greatly.

    1. Yes, you’re right. They are just amateurs, but I thought surely after 10 minutes of watching the replay that they would agree with the rest of the world… Just sayin’. 🙂
      xoxo

      DA BEARS!!!
