Recipe Notes

  • Store any leftover hummus in an airtight food container in the refrigerator.
  • Try this recipe with roasted pumpkin.
  • Instead of hazelnuts, I garnished mine with pumpkin seeds.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Add all ingredients except hazelnuts to a food processor or blender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  2. Pour into a serving bowl. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, sprinkle with more paprika and garnish with hazelnuts or roast the squash seeds and use those.

Last night we made food: Chef's Creamy Bourbon Pecan Pie Milkshake Recipe Is a Holiday Favorite 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.
