Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut & Hummus

Spiced Roasted Pumpkin  Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut and Hummus! Has a recipe ever sounded SO comforting? This recipe is one for your books. It’s a cozy fall-inspired dish that will wow your loved ones.

Come the Fall, I like to take full advantage of pumpkin! I try including it in pretty much every meal I can from soups, pizza, desserts and side dishes. Turns out, a pumpkin can do lots more than be carved at halloween. It’s a comforting veg that makes any dish better. And this Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut & Hummus is one of my favourite recipes I’ve made to date.

Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut & Hummus

To begin, I’ve roasted the pumpkin in pumpkin spice, cardamom and garlic. The result is a deliciously flavoured pumpkin that you can pop right into your mouth. But of course, it doesn’t stop there. I’ve also made a sweet and citrus dressing with garlic, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and freshly chopped parsley to dress the roasted pumpkin. To serve, I’ve poured the pumpkin over a thick layer of hummus, making a beautiful creamy dip to pair with. Sprinkled with some toasted hazelnut and voila! It’s a pumpkin lovers dream dish!

Roasted Pumpkin

if you’re celebrating American Thanksgiving, you’ll certainly want to add this one to your menu. It so perfectly proves that side-dishes can be the fan favourite of the night. And, that eating plantbased is so flavourful, satiating and gourmet. Who needs a turkey when side dishes are this remarkable?

Just a side note – if pumpkin is hard for you to find, or just too much effort to chop, this Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut and Hummus would also work well with butternut squash, kabocha squash or sweet potato. 

That’s all there really is to say about this heavenly side-dish. I hope you’re running to your kitchen to start cooking. Regardless, I absolutely recommend you trying this gorgeously Spiced Roasted Pumpkin with Hazelnut & Hummus before that the fall season is over!  Especially for those of you with upcoming Thanksgiving celebrations. I’m sure you’re gong to love it, and so will your guests. Whether you’re a pumpkin lover or never tried it in a dish, this is going to make you frequent the pumpkin patch for more than just one to carve on Oct. 31.

Serves 4 people


  • 1 small cooking pumpkin (550g) or red kuri squash, kabocha, or butternut squash
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cloves garlic , finely chopped
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or Quatre épices)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch sea salt

  • 1 clove garlic , finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

The rest
