I’m a huge sucker for hummus since it just speaks to the Lebanese heritage in me. It’s one of my very favorite snacks in the world. A while back, I made just a plain hummus and pita chips for a small gathering I had and it was wonderful. I decided I wanted to play with the proportions and flavors this time though and really kick it up. Inspiration struck when I spied butternut squash in my market. Let me tell you, this roasted butternut squash hummus was unbelievable! I think my Nana Jeanie would be really proud of this one. She was responsible for introducing me to everything I love about Middle Eastern cuisine. This was super easy to put together too!
I was so excited when I sat down to snack on this roasted butternut squash hummus. I put it into a pretty bowl with the pita chips on the side. The hummus was so bright and fresh from the butternut squash and lemon, with the chickpeas and tahini giving it a wonderful backbone. There was a lot of garlic flavor here too, which I adored. I thought of my Nana Person all during making it and it was a wonderful way to connect with her. I hope you enjoy this slice of Lebanese heaven as much as I did!
