Who doesn’t love hummus? 

I’m pretty sure that I could eat bread and hummus everyday for the rest of my life with zero difficulty. It’s creamy and delicious and tastes amazing.

I am definitely not above shop bought hummus and it’s pretty much our go to snack whenever we need something quick and easy but there is definitely a special place in my heart for the homemade stuff.

And I’m not really the throw everything in the blender kinda gal. It’s slightly more effort but I strongly believe that the only way to go is to boil your chickpeas with bicarb before blending.

I got this tip from an Ottolenghi recipe and it makes THE BEST hummus. It makes it so much creamier and that smooth texture is pretty life changing I gotta say. 

The bicarbonate of soda helps to break down the skins on the chickpeas which means that there’s no laborious pealing involved but you still get a super smooth dip.

I’ve been making hummus this way for years and it’s loved by everyone who’s tried it.

So this autumn/winter I decided to make my usual hummus but to fancy it up a little bit. There’s so many different options and I’m pretty sure I’ll be making many more different versions over the next few months but first off I wanted to start with a roasted butternut squash hummus.

It seemed like the perfect option since squash is such a good winter vegetable and roasting it gives an amazing sweetness.

The thing I like about this hummus is that it’s just got that hint of butternut squash flavour. I love it that way because it just compliments the tahini and chickpea flavour perfectly.

Roasted Butternut Squash Hummus Ingredients:

  • Chickpeas: I use tinned because I’m useless and know myself well enough to know that I will never remember to soak the chickpeas the night before I want hummus
  • Bicarbonate of Soda: Or baking soda if you’re in the US
  • Tahini: One of the best ingredients out there, I love it!
  • Lemon Juice
  • Garlic: I go pretty heavy on the garlic when I make hummus 
  • Butternut Squash: All roasted up until amazingly tasty

    That’s a great tip to cook the chickpeas with baking soda prior to blending. I can’t wait to try this out.

    I love hummus too, and that is such a useful tip about the baking soda to help break down the skins of the chickpeas!

    I’ve made hummus before, but never peeled off the chick pea skins before. I can’t wait to try it this way.

    I love hummus, but I have always made it plain. This sounds really good and simple. I will have to give this a try next time I make hummus. It will also be my first time eating butternut squash, so should be fun.
