Traditional hummus recipe

To make traditional hummus, you’ll just combine chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon, garlic, salt, and pepper in a food processor until smooth. This creates the base recipe, and then you can add other flavors for a more unique hummus recipe.

Ways To Eat Hummus

While we love this Pumpkin Hummus recipe, served on THE BIG BOARD, you can also use hummus in cooking.

Here are a few of our favorite ways (find more hummus inspiration here):

  • Slather it on toast with some sliced cucumber
  • Use it as a dressing in salad (thin it down with olive oil)
  • Add it to meal prep for a Mediterranean lunch (hummus, veggies, cheese cubes, almonds, pita)
  • Scramble it for an egg breakfast (so good with bacon or sausage)
  • Drizzle it on pita sandwiches for an easy dinner
  • Layer Mediterranean roasted vegetables on top

How to make hummus

  1. Choose a flavor you would like to make.
  2. Add the base ingredients plus the flavor makers to a food processor.
  3. Blitz until smooth and creamy, adding a dash of chickpea juice as needed, and the pumpkin, to achieve a smooth and creamy texture.

For best texture, let cool in the fridge for an hour before eating.

We love to drizzle with olive oil right before serving, and for this season, add a sprinkle of pomegranate or roasted pumpkin seeds. Don’t forget the freshly chopped rosemary for a garnish!

Today, on this blessed quiet September morning, I take stock. Of the sounds, the smell of the forest where we live, the stunning colors, company coming for dinner tonight. I must say how much I adore the fall season. Many of the days we are still able to eat outside, or on our front cozy deck.

Speaking of fall, I was recently featured in a post on hospitality in this Fall Dayspring Magazine (if you want to pick up a copy).

Happy last day of September!
