- There are two ways to make this Roasted Pumpkin Hummus. The first takes a bit longer, but the pumpkin flavor is intense and incredibly delicious.
- The second way, maybe 5 minutes.
- It’s all about the pumpkin. Whether you roast a small sugar pie pumpkin, or use canned pumpkin puree. To be honest, both ways are so, so good.
Roasting the Pumpkin: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. Slice off the top of the pumpkin, scoop and discard the seeds and pulp; slice into wedges. Lay the wedges on the prepared baking sheet, drizzle with We Olive Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and season generously with salt and pepper. Roast for 45 minutes or until tender. Let cool; remove the flesh and puree.
