Hummus is one of my favourite things ever, the flavour combinations are endless and it's great both as a snack with brown rice crackers or as a side to a meal. It's particularly awesome atop my Curried Buckwheat and Charred Broccoli Salad! If you're busy with work, school or university, it's nice and portable too. I hope you love this recipe - its been on high rotation this week in my kitchen!


BUTTERNUT SQUASH

Butternut squash is a rich source of beta-carotene, responsible for the rich orange colour and the precursor to vitamin A. Vitamin A is associated with a decreased risk of macular degeneration.

This hummus is... 

  • Deep in flavour, 
  • Smooth and rich, 
  • The perfect addition to any meal, 
  • ... and a great way to sneak in some extra veggies!

Butternut & Roasted Garlic Hummus

Makes: a large batch

The Goods

  • 1/2 medium-large butternut squash
  • 6 large cloves garlic, in skins
  • 2 cans organic chickpeas, rinsed + drained and skins removed if you'd like extra smooth hummus as I've done here
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 juicy lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2/3 cup water

The How To

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Remove skin and seeds from the squash and dice into small, uniform cubes.
  2. Place the squash on a baking tray and toss through olive oil as well as salt and pepper. Put the garlic cloves on the tray with the squash and roast for 20 minutes.
  3. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
