Spicy Pumpkin Navy Bean Hummus

Tiffany Bannworth


This is great on so many things. It makes an exotic touch to vegetable platters at parties, is always great with pita, a healthy alternative to mayo on a sandwich, and sometimes I just give my older baby (9mos+) a scoop on his plate at meal time along with his meal.

How to Make Spicy Pumpkin Navy Bean Hummus


  • 1This works best if beans are still hot. Place all ingredients in a food processor, save the lemons.
  • 2Squeeze lemons over mixture, careful to keep seeds from transferring.
  • 3Puree for 2 minutes. I taste test. I sometimes add more lemon, you may want to add more heat by increasing paprika or cayenne.
  • 4Place in a jar. I like to refrigerate for a couple of hours before use so that the flavors marry, but you do not have to do so.
