Autumn is the best time to stuff your face (and bellies!) with apples, squash, and pumpkins! Make the most of these fruits and vegetables by concocting not only traditional meals and treats out of them, but also in other savory or sweet ways. While they’re in season, we suggest using them in one of the most unconventional way: hummus. These fall-recipes can be eaten throughout the year. However, we suggest taking advantage of them while the produce is in season. Alas, here are the fall-inspired hummus recipes you need.
Simply put, the more tahini your hummus has, the better the recipe. We added between 2 to 8 tablespoons of tahini to all of the recipes below to give them that rich creaminess we prefer hummus to have.
This fall, we suggest combining your two loves: sweet potatoes and hummus to create this Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus! Developed by our friend Kate over at Cookie & Kate, this recipe bursts with flavor. This beautiful orange colored dip is both savory and sweet and dances on the tongue. Be like Kate and eat it with just about anything! Pita wedges, sliced veggie, bagel chips, quesadillas – you name it – it pairs greatly with this sweet potato hummus. We recommend adding ¼ cup Soom Tahini to this recipe to elevate the flavor and texture further. We also suggest adding 2 tbsp cold water to slightly thin the recipe.
If you’re not feeling the spicy sweet potato hummus, we recommend giving this savory pumpkin hummus a treat. Made by Philly-based blogger Erin Lives Whole, this hummus is incredibly easy to make and consists of 10 ingredients to make this fall appetizer. Rather than using it as a dip, try mixing it into your salad for a creamy dressing or as a spread on toast! Add an additional ¼ cup tahini to get a hummus that is light and fluffy, slightly sweet from the pumpkin, and packs a punch thanks to the sprinkle of cayenne pepper.
Velvety, colorful, and slightly sweet and earthy. These are the reasons why we love this bean-less kabocha squash hummus. Dolly and Oatmeal knocked it out of the park with this recipe, especially because of her hefty measure of tahini. She even called out the more tahini the merrier in this hummus. Top this fall and winter appetizer or snack with toasted pumpkin seeds thyme sprigs, or rosemary sprigs for the most stunning dip you won’t be able to stop eating.
If you miss the fluffy consistency of hummus because you’re watching the number of carbs you’re consuming, don’t fret. This cauliflower “hummus” swaps chickpeas for roasted cauliflower in a genius way. For those who are on the fence of cauliflower, this recipe will convince you otherwise. It’s creamy, flavorful, and a delicious fall recipe to eat. It’s also Whole30 and paleo-approved, giving you another reason to try this tasty dip! Rather than adding ¼ cup of tahini, we recommend a ½ cup for an even nutty flavor and creamier texture.
Be adventurous and give this apple hummus a try. Yes, it’s an unconventional type of hummus, but sweet “dessert hummus” is trending. We suggest giving this specific recipe a try, but subbing out peanut butter for tahini. This spiced hummus is a sweeter, autumn-inspired spin on the traditional savory dip, but makes for a great conversation starter and a better appetizer, too. Serve with apple crisps, crackers, or even pretzels for a yummy treat!
