One thing I really miss since following the Wahls protocol is my hummus! I know my body does better without legumes and my digestion is so much happier but I had to find a way to make my mind happy. I was telling a chef about my love for hummus and how I was missing it. She suggested subbing pumpkin. I was not convinced but I was hungry so I gave it a try. Result is this super yummy dip!


Pumpkin Hummus by Beth Schultz

  • 1 Can Pumpkin or 1 3/4 cup Fresh Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Tahini
  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon Squeezed
  • Bulb of Roasted Garlic
  • 1 Clove Fresh Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Curry Powder (the best Frontier Curry Powder Organic)

Add all ingredients to a food processor, blend and enjoy. I serve this with veggie slices and homemade crackers from Elana’s Pantry. Recipe can be found here

If you are using fresh pumpkin, get a nice pie pumpkin, cut in half, scoop out seeds and place facing down in a glass roasting dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes.
