Leftover Pumpkin Puree
Making a recipe using leftover pumpkin puree has never been easier.
For example, if you remember from one of my last pumpkin recipes, I mentioned that I never use the entire can of pumpkin at a time.
I had just finished up the recipe for my Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies when my youngest son asked me to make hummus for a snack.
Since I had over a half can of pumpkin leftover, I decided to make this quick + easy recipe.

How To Make Gluten-Free Vegan Smoky Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus: Step-by-Step Instructions
Here is how to make this recipe and I'll show you with step-by-step instructions below.
Step 1: Gather and Measure The Ingredients
Firstly, gather and measure all the ingredients needed for the recipe.
Next, prep the ingredients before adding them to the food processor:
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas
- Peel the garlic
- Squeeze the lime juice
Step 2: Add all Ingredients to a Food Processor + Process
Secondly, add all the ingredients to a food processor and process until everything is well blended.
Step 3: Taste and Adjust Seasonings
Thirdly, taste the hummus and adjust the seasonings to your preference.
You may need to add 1-2 tablespoons of filtered/purified water depending on the consistency you prefer.
For example, I like my hummus on the thick side, so I only added (2) tablespoons of filtered/purified water.
How To Store The Hummus
Lastly, store any leftover hummus in an air-tight BPA-free container in the refrigerator.
Expert Tip + Ingredient Substitutions for Gluten-Free Vegan Smoky Chipotle Pumpkin Hummus
Here are some expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Pumpkin Puree. Make sure you use 100% pumpkin "puree" and not pumpkin "pie filling". In addition, try to buy the pumpkin puree in a BPA-free can if possible.
Avocado Oil. Can be substituted with organic extra-virgin olive oil in the same amount.
Smoked Paprika. If you don't have "smoked" paprika, regular paprika is fine to use. Just keep in mind the recipe won't have a "smoky" flavor to it.
Chipotle. This is what gives the recipe a "spicy" flavor. If you don't like spicy foods or will be serving this to children, you can reduce or omit the chipotle.
Lime Juice. The fresh-squeezed lime juice will give you the best flavor and most nutrients. However, you can use organic store-bought as a substitute.
Himalayan Pink Salt. This is my salt of preference, however, it can always be substituted with sea salt.
