The key to this creamy, dreamy pumpkin hummus? Use your blender instead of food processor!



  • 3 15 oz cans chickpeas, drained but reserve 3/4 cup liquid from can
  • 3/4 cup aquafaba (reserved bean liquid)
  • 1 cup tahini
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


  1. Add all ingredients to high speed blender and blend on high for up to 5 minutes. Pause as often as needed to scrape down the sides.
  2. Blend until hummus reaches desired consistency. If for some reason it’s too dry, add more reserved chickpea liquid in 1 tbsp intervals.
  3. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, fresh sage and pomegranate arils.


This makes a large batch of hummus and is meant to serve a crowd. If making for yourself or a smaller group, we suggest halving the recipe.
