Me and beans, we don’t get along.  There came a time when we finally had to part ways.  But the thing that I missed most was hummus.  That’s not a problem anymore after I realized that you didn’t need beans to make a delicious hummus.  Introducing Paleo Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Hummus.

My first introduction to no-bean hummus was at a San Francisco restaurant called Cafe Gratitude.  They made a raw hummus with soaked almonds.  It was divine.  That was my staple hummus recipe for years.  Since then, I have experimented and come up with lots of creative ways to make hummus without beans.  One of my favorites is Parsnip Hummus.  It may sound weird, but it really works.

Today’s recipe was born from a lonely leftover pumpkin sitting on the counter top.  My mind was trying to create a pumpkin dessert to finish off the fall harvest of pumpkins and squash from our garden.  Mousse?  Pudding?  Cookies?  What to make? Then I remembered the amazing photograph in a food magazine I saw in line at the health food store while standing in line.  Pumpkin hummus.  I’m going to give it a try.

For this recipe, I used fresh baked pumpkin,  roasted cauliflower (to replace the beans), and oven-roasted garlic.  The garlic is to die for. With a little coordination, it was easy to just bake it all at the same time.  Cut the pumpkin in half, scrape the seeds, and bake it upside down.  The cauliflower florets roast easily in a bit of ghee or coconut oil.  For the garlic, cut of the top 1/2 inch of the garlic head to expose the cloves inside.  Bake covered in a small dish until tender.  Amazingly enough, they were all done in less than 30 minutes.

So here it is.  My version of pumpkin hummus.

    This looks amazing! There is no end to delicious pumpkin recipes! I’ve tried a hummus recipe from The Detoxinista’s website using zucchini instead of beans and it was great too! I try and stay away from beans whenever possible too.

      I’m sure they would work great for this. I would defrost them and let them drain in a colander for a bit so you don’t get too much moisture in your hummus. I’d love to hear if you try this. My family keeps asking me to make this again and again.

  1. […] Now, I’m not going to lie and tell you that this is your typical NY bagel.  It’s not.  But for a gluten and grain free bagel, they are awesome.  I slice them in half and pan toast them in a bit of ghee for a perfectly toasted, crispy bagel with just the right amount of chewiness.  My favorite ways to eat them are with a titch of ghee and raw honey or smothered in Paleo Hummus.
