roasted squash hummus

You know I’m having an exciting Friday night when I’m writing up a blog post about hummus! At least this Roasted Squash Hummus has a little something different going on. In place of the traditional chickpeas, this hummus gets its body from a roasted squash. Of course there’s tahini and lemon, but also some cool ingredients like za’atar and pomegranate molasses. I used a small carnival squash, and although Dorie just has you mash together the ingredients with a fork, I put everything into my mini food processor and gave it a whiz. I plated it up with a smear of thick yogurt, drizzles of olive oil and more pom molasses and a sprinkling of toasted pumpkin seeds. It’s earthy and creamy with a touch of sweetness. This was more interesting than my normal Sunday football food, and I thought it made a nice dip for veggies and pita chips.

For the recipe, see Everyday DorieΒ by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book FridaysΒ to see how the group liked this one.

  1. Your hummus looks wonderful! Glad to see that you’ve enjoyed it!

  2. That does look good. I’m glad you enjoyed it, me, not so much but at least we tried it.

  3. Pumpkin seeds fort the win! I love that garnish.

  4. Looks great! Glad you liked it!

  5. Your plating is superb, as always. I had another light meal with veggies and hummus earlier. Feel good about this healthy and delish spread.

  6. Your photo is gorgeous! I also used my mini food processor because my squash was kind of stringy when I mashed it. Definitely a good call!

  7. That is a great picture, and am glad you enjoyed it too.

  8. Looks wonderful, Steph! Hehe, I had to chuckle at the exciting Friday night. πŸ™‚ Glad you all enjoyed it. It wasn’t a winner for us, but I’m happy to have tried it!

  9. Beautiful presentation!

  10. Very pretty presentation.
    I agree that this needed a little extra processing. Hummus type dips beg to be smooth (yes, I asked mine and it begged… πŸ™‚ )

  11. This is a good one to shakeup the football snacks. Though I must admit that I wasn’t a fan of this hummus. Chickpeas for me!

  12. (I’m catching up!) Have loved this terrific photo since I saw it on your IG. Seasonal hummus πŸ‘πŸ‘
