You'll need:

  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons water (depends on thickness you desire)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper
  • hazelnuts

Here's how to make it:

  1. Add all ingredients except hazelnuts to a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  2. Pour into a serving bowl.
  3. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, sprinkle with more paprika and garnish with hazelnuts.

Serve with pita bread, crackers, pita chips or chopped veggies.

Last night we made food: How to Make a Decadent Bourbon Pecan Pie Milkshake (Oh, My)! and today it was butternut squash hummus. If you haven't tried this, you really need to. It's delicious. My kids wanted it spicier, so we added more paprika (and used smoked paprika) and a few shakes of cayenne, too. Instead of hazelnuts we toasted the squash seeds, seasoned them with paprika and cumin, and sprinkled them over the top. My son even made a to-go container. Ate it with pita chips, naan and carrots.
