This Easy Roasted Chili Squash Hummus is a tasty twist on the classic hummus recipe. Perfect for parties, lunch boxes, or snacks.
Right, you probably know by now, that I am addicted to hummus… I just love love, love hummus. So, of course, I am going to try every twist and way of making hummus. Like Sweet potato hummus, Raw Carrot Hummus, Lentil Hummus, Pea Hummus, and a couple hundred more haha.
The squash works so well with this hummus, as it adds a touch of natural sweetness. For a bit of heat, I have added some chili, and finished the hummus with pumpkin seeds for a crunch!
But there’s nothing quite like the classic hummus recipe!
Olive oil, lemon juice, cumin salt, and garlic…that’s it! It’s pure perfection. But, why not put a twist on it? It’s versatile, delicious, and can be used as a dip or spread in just about anything just like the traditional hummus.
I love hummus and eat it often. I’ve bought it for years, but have now gotten into the habit of making it myself since it’s so quick and easy. All you need are a few basics and you’re ready to make the best hummus ever!`
