Posted by Everything Pumpkin on October 28, 2012

Mother's Farms suggest serving this with Mother's Farms Pumpkin Seed Tortilla Chips or Mother's Farms Multigrain Tortilla Chips

This dish offers a holiday-style twist on the traditional Middle Eastern spread. You can find pumpkin seeds–also called pepitas–in groceries and Mexican markets. Prepare up to a day ahead, and refrigerate.

Yield

10 servings (serving size: about 3 tablespoons hummus)

Ingredients

  • 4  (6-inch) pitas, each cut into 8 wedges
  • Cooking spray
  • 2  tablespoons  tahini (sesame-seed paste) **
  • 2  tablespoons  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1  teaspoon  olive oil
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1  (15-ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1  garlic clove, chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1  tablespoon  pumpkin seed kernels, toasted (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Place tahini and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a food processor, and process until smooth. Add parsley; pulse until blended. Spoon hummus into a serving bowl; sprinkle with pumpkinseed kernels, if desired. 

**Tahini is a thick paste made of ground sesame seeds that can be purchased already prepared from many supermarkets and specialty stores.
