recipe: garlic-pumpkin hummus

We had a company potluck today, and even though I've sworn [after learning the hard way] that I wouldn't make something I've never made for a party, I did it. 

I wanted something different and fall-y... so, PUMPKIN duh! Even though I'm not a big hummus person, I decided to throw some of that together. 

If you have a blender or a food processor, it's hella easy and... good! [Even though I didn't find that out until the end of the party cuz I was too scared to try it ahead of time in case it sucked... then I'd have an excuse. "Oh man, I had no idea!"]

WHAT YOU NEED: 

-2 7.75 oz of chick peas
-1 cup of pumpkin puree
-1.5 tbs olive oil
-1 tbs tahini
-2 cloves/tbs minced garlic
-1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-pita chips to eat it with!

WHAT YOU DO: 

1. Blend/puree the chickpeas and olive oil. 

2. Add in the pumpkin and do it again. 

3. Add in all the other ingredients. [FYI this is what tahini looks like. Kiiiinda weird, but smells delicious!]

4. Mix it all up, chill in in the fridge for a little, and BAM! Enjoy!

Seriously... how easy is that?! I had about two hours to work with this morning, and this took maybe 15 minutes!

BONUS: Pumpkin is an aphrodisiac... especially for guys. Hellloooooo office drama!
....I mean... what?!

love,
elizabethany

Garlic is really best thing to add in daily food diet system. It contains huge amount of anti oxidants. So it helps to boost our body health. Lots of men are wants to increase their stamina, but they can't do it in a right way. Few of them are using the alternative solution like using the medicine such as generic levitra, silagra, super p force and etc... But consuming the natural food system is the best way to boost our body health.
