Boiling Beets!

A very chilly but happy saturday happening here!




Pumpkin Hummus

This afternoon, I am hosting a fall mixer. I have been away most of the summer and I am finally able to catch up with friends and what better way to catch up, than with all of them at once.  I am serving an array of fall  themed food and hopefully I will be able to post some pics of the different offerings.  But at the risk of photo blogging the mixer fails…I figured I would to share this recipe with the world and give you a preview of the day’s treats.

Ingredients List:

  • 1 large can (28 oz) garbanzo beans (chick peas)
  •  ***save 1/4 cup of the chick pea water and add if you are having trouble blending your mixture!)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
  • the juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • salt and pepper to taste

On another note, I’m totally hooked on this blog:  (Under The Hill), it is thought provoking, funny, heart breaking and informative. A genuine perspective on the government, the people of Canada and world issues. Please take a moment to check it out!

Happy Sunday!
