1/2 cups canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and lightly rinsed, reserve liquid from can

1 1/2 cups butternut squash purée

1/4 cup tahini

juice of 1 lemon, about 1 1/2 Tbsp

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


olive oil

finely chopped cilantro

white and black sesame seeds

smoked paprika

Serve with:

warm naan bread

veggie chips, such as carrot and beet

garlic naan chips

multi grain crackers, such as fig and black sesame crackers

extra lemon slices


1. Add all of the hummus ingredients to a food processor and purée until smooth. Taste and add more lemon juice, salt and smoked paprika if desired. If the purée is a little too thick for your liking, add a tablespoon or two of the reserved chickpea liquid.

2. Transfer hummus to a bowl and garnish with a drizzle of olive oil—about two teaspoons—a sprinkling of smoked paprika, some finely chopped fresh cilantro and a sprinkling of white and black sesame seeds.

3. Serve immediately with veggie chips and crackers or keep chilled until ready to serve. Best enjoyed within 2-3 days.
