I wanted a vibrant yellow Hummus therefore added turmeric to roasted pumpkin to get this hue. This hummus tasted like magic to my Indian taste buds. Velvety, smooth and an absolute show stopper. The sweetness from the charred Pumpkin, nuttiness from Tahina, earthiness from the Turmeric and of course tartness from the lime juice make this a beautifully balanced dish.

This is my most favourite Hummus flavour out of all that I’ve made so far. If you make this in your kitchen, do tag me @supaintsonplates #supaintsonplates on Instagram.
