During my first fall semester in the States, I discovered the mysterious American pumpkin obsession. It took me a few weeks before ordering a P.S.L (Pumpkin Spice Latte) at Starbucks because, yeah, this is weird, Pumpkin in coffee? I had never been excited about pumpkin soup in Europe. Who in Europe loves pumpkin anyway?? I have to tell you folks, I feel really stupid, because I am now obsessed and I have been waiting all year for the Pumpkin cream cheese to come back at Trader Joe’s. (Hi Lolo:)).
Not being born in America I am deprived of any pumpkin cooking skills and I can’t wait for my roommate Emeri to teach me how to make a delicious pumpkin bread. So, NO, this is not going to be the place for you to find crazy, innovative pumpkin recipes. The only thing I am proud of in term of pumpkin, is this HUMMUS.
If you don’t have a food processor yet, but now are too excited about making your first hummus because my first picture kills it, do not worry, it is not as expensive as you imagine! On amazon, you have a large range of processors at every price! Oh, and Christmas is coming soon.
In order to make this fantastic hummus you need:
- 1 can of Pumpkin puree
- 1 can of chickpeas
- 1/3 cup of Tahini
- Juice of 1 large lemon
- 2 tblspoon of olive oil
- 3 gloves of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of Cumin
- pinch of salt & pepper
- Pour the chickpeas and a little of their juice in the processor and process, adding gradually more of the liquid. Process well after each addition.
- Add the lemon juice and process until desirable consistency.
- Stir in the Tahini.
- Add the olive oil and garlic and process until smooth.
- Pour the hummus in a nice bowl, where you can garnish with chickpeas, cilantro, olives . (If you have other ideas I am interested! Leave a comment:)).
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
- The hummus is better at cold temperature! For me, the best time to eat it is the day after 🙂
- Those little pita chips are from Trader Joe’s.
- The candle comes from La Nomade Style
