Butternut Squash Hummus | Reclaiming Yesterday

[I made this creamy Butternut Squash Hummus for Earth Fare!]

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m obsessed with hummus. And chickpeas in general, really.

Cue this Coconut Green Curry Hummus, this Spinach and Feta Chickpea Pasta, these Chickpea Flour Crepes, this Moussaka with Chickpea Bechamel, and this Gazpacho with Crispy Chickpeas

Hummus is the ultimate snack food because it’s got protein, carbs, and healthy fat (depending on the oil used) to keep you full between meals. 

But this hummus. This hummus is beyond. 

I’ve made this Butternut Squash Hummus 5 times in the last 3 weeks. Twice during test phase, once to photograph, another time for our Thanksgiving feast, annnd again to bring to a Christmas party. 

No regrets.

And seeing these pictures as I write this post is edging me towards my 6th  go-round. 

I’ll try not to be overly dramatic here, but FOR THE LOVE OF HUMMUS make this! It’s my favorite hummus to date, and I’ve been through a lot.

The butternut squash is of course the star of this hummus, but the secret ingredient is organic white miso paste. It gives the hummus a kick of umami flavor that you just can’t get enough of. ✏️ side note: I don’t eat too much soy, but when I do I always look for organic, and preferably fermented soy, like miso

All of the flavors and textures just work so well together in this hummus. I’d highly recommend topping it with some juicy pomegranate arils and chopped pistachios and serving it with some Jackson’s Honest Heirloom Purple Potato chips (They’re cooked in coconut oil, and they’re awesome 😋)

One final benefit of this hummus- it can absolutely double as table decoration (at least for a few minutes).
