    Delicata Squash Hummus Recipe

    Crazy Good Hummus

    Let’s go crazy for this delicata squash hummus recipe! I’ve made a carrot, beet, parsley and now delicata squash hummus.  It has a semi sweet earthy flavor.  It pairs well with chicken as a condiment or a dollop on a hard boiled egg and you are in for a real treat.

    The delicata squash is a good source of dietary  fiber and potassium, as well as smaller amounts of vitamins C and B, magnesium and manganese. They are delicious roasted in the oven. They’re skins can be eaten when cooked until tender.

    delicata squash hummus recipe

    2 cups cooked delicata squash pulp

    1/2 cup tahini

    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

    2 garlic cloves

    3 ice cups

    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

    1/4 teaspoon pepper

    Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds.  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and some kosher salt.  Bake until tender, approximately 30 minutes.

    When squash is cooled, remove the pulp and place into a blender along with the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and ice cubs.

    Process the mixture starting off on low using a tamper tool as it is turning to ensure everything is blended. Raise the speed and process until smooth.

    Transfer to a plate, swirling it in a circular pattern as in the middle east.  Serve
