Substitutions

Pumpkin: If you want to cut down on time and effort you can use canned pumpkin puree instead of roasting a whole fresh pumpkin yourself. Just take the pumpkin puree and use the amount of roasted pumpkin requested in the recipe. No actual roasting will be necessary (well, no roasting pumpkins is necessary, the garlic should still be roasted).

Recipe Tips

Storage. Keep your homemade hummus stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Freezing. You can freeze hummus if desired. This will lengthen the shelflife by several more weeks. Simply place the hummus in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. To thaw, place in the fridge overnight or place in a bowl of warm water for a few hours until the hummus is about room temperature.

Recipe scaling. You can easily scale this recipe up (double or triple it) or halve it if desired. One batch is about 3 ½ cups of hummus so if you want more or less, adjust as necessary so that you’ll have enough for everyone or just yourself, whatever the case may be.
