Wanting to get away from the run-of-the-mill plain hummus, I decided to use delicata squash and curry powder to liven things up! —KrisW
Can of chickpeas
Roasted delicata squash (medium sized)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Curry Powder (or to taste)
Almond oil -- (for drizzling)
In This Recipe
Add chickpeas, Delicata squash (I used leftover roasted delicata from the night before -- if you need to roast yours, refer to note at the end of recipe), tahini, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and curry powder to a food processor.
Processor ingredients, scraping down the sides every so often. Add water 1 tbsp at a time through the feed tube until a thick, paste-like consistency is achieved.
Serve with a drizzle of almond oil and a dusting of curry powder. If you're really keen use roasted delicata seeds to garnish.
Note: to roast delicata squash, first wash the squash (skin is edible, no peeling required). Then cut in half lengthwise and deseed (seeds can be saved to roast later if desired). Cut each half into 2 cm "U" shaped pieces. Coat w/ oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Roast in a 425c oven for 30-40 minutes -- turning the pieces over half way through. Remove from oven and allow to cool before adding to the food processor.
