Pumpkin Hummus with a Kick

Smooth and creamy hummus made with sweet pumpkin. This hummus has a slight kick to it from the chili and contains no oil. Serve with bread or use as a dip.

It’s about time I shared a recipe other than baked goodies with you guys again. I can’t even remember the last time. The past few months have all been cookies, cupcakes and more. But today it’s time for homemade hummus! Pumpkin hummus. A while back I tried this store-bought pumpkin hummus in one of my taste tests (Dutch) and both me and my boyfriend liked it a lot. And so I decided to make my own version. A version without added sugar and less salt. It turned out delicious (if I may say so myself). I’ve made this hummus a couple of times now and each of those times the batch hasn’t lasted more than a few days. Gone in a jiffy. That good.

Recently, my younger sister decided to start eating vegan. As I want to support her in whatever she does, I decided to incorporate a bit of vegan into my life/blog too. I guess she inspired me a bit too. Inspired me to be more conscious of all the kinds of food I mindlessly stuff into my body (which is a lot!). And also, you know, how bad could it be to eat vegan a couple of times a week? I don’t think anyone has ever died from cutting down on meat anyway. So in light of this “new diet”, I wanted to share a vegan lunch recipe I developed with you guys today: Vegan Tofu Lunch Wraps. FYI: These wraps have been approved by my vegan sister ánd my meat-loving boyfriend. Read more

A while back I got this amazing pumpkin from my colleague’s garden, which I turned into bagss of frozen pumpkin puree to have on stock.

I had no problem devouring a couple of these pancakes, because the recipe was Read more
