Savory Pumpkin Hummus

This past weekend SPH and I packed up R, G and a whole lot of gear and headed to University of Virginia for SPH's college homecoming weekend.

Of course any good football game needs to include a good tailgate, and since the Cavaliers' colors are blue and orange,  I decided to create a pumpkin hummus recipe (orange) to serve with blue corn chips.

Go Hoos!

Savory Pumpkin Hummus

2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and cut in half
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 - 15oz can Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
3-4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons tahini
1-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1-2 teaspoons dried rosemary, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Place the garlic cloves in a microwave-safe dish and cover with the 2 tablespoons oil.



Cook on HIGH for 45 seconds.



Remove the garlic and chop well with a knife.

Place the garlic, oil and the remaining ingredients (begin with the lower amount of water and vinegar) in a food processor and process for 30 seconds.  Scrape the sides and process again until smooth.  Add additional water or vinegar to taste and for the desired texture.




Serve with vegetables, chips or crackers.

Makes about 2 cups hummus.

Life is sweet,
SPC

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
