Squash and Hazelnut Hummus - Spicetrekkers

Most hummus is made with chickpeas, however, it is a dish that can easily be modified and transformed with what you have on hand. For this recipe, we recommend using your favourite kind of winter squash : acorn, butternut, pumpkin.. ! Substituting the hazelnuts with almonds or walnuts is also possible.


  • 1 cup of roasted squash in cubes
  • ¼ cup of oven roasted hazelnuts
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped fine
  • 1-2 Tbsp lemon juice (to taste)
  • 1 tsp zaatar
  • A pinch of Aleppo Pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • A dash of olive oil



  1. Crush the hazelnuts into pieces in a food processor. Keep ¼ of the crushed nuts to garnish.
  2. Crush the remainder in the food processor until left with a fine powder.
  3. In a bowl, reduce the squash to a paste. Add all other ingredients, except for the olive oil, and whisk everything together. Taste and adjust. Garnish with the remaining hazelnuts and a dash of olive oil.
