Guess what, we (in the UK) are into British Summer Time. Longer evenings, alfresco dinners and sunshine! The online downside to this is winter veg will be out of season. I thought I’d make the most of these last wonderful squashes that are around, and whizz up this roasted squash hummus. Dips are my go to, I like to make sure there’s always a pot of some variation of hummus in the fridge. Ready and waiting for when I get in from work and need something stat, ready to dollop on my packed lunch to give me some energy through the day.
Charlie has gone away to Austria for 2 weeks, and I am feeling a little lazy with my eating habits. I made a big batch of this roasted squash hummus last week, it’s been spread on toasted sourdough for dinner at least three times since then. But hey, still veggies in my belly! This recipe is vegan and gluten-free too! Quick dinners mean more sofa and chills with my cats, anyone else talk to their pets more often than they’d like to admit…no? Just me then…..
Roasted Squash Hummus
A nice simple but oh so flavoursome hummus. Vegan and gluten free.
- 1/4 large kabocha squash (any squash will work but kabocha has a wonderful flavour)
- 1 tin organic chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
- 1 clove garlic (chopped)
- 35 ml Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 juice lemon
- 2 tsp tahini
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- pinch himalayan rock salt
- 1 tsp coconut oil
Pre-heat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6
Peel, de-seed the squash. Dice into cubes. Spread onto a lined baking sheet. Rub coconut oil through the squash.
Sprinkle the paprika over the squash. Roast for 30 mins until soft.
Once the squash is cooked, pull it out of the oven and leave to cool for 10 mins.
Add all to a high speed blender and blend until smooth
