Roasted butternut squash is one of my favorite foods. And hummus is another of my favorite foods. So a roasted butternut squash hummus? Is heaven!
This healthy hearty butternut squash hummus makes a fabulous dip for flat breads or fresh raw veggies, or use it as a healthy spread. Serve it alongside rice or just eat it as it is, like a butternut squash hummus mash!
It’s super easy to make, the hardest part of it (which isn’t hard at all) is roasting the butternut squash. Once that’s done, you’re 5 minutes away from the creamiest dreamiest hummus.
I wanted to go for a bit of extra texture in this hummus so along with the tahini I added in some whole sesame seeds. It worked out great!
It’s smooth creamy hummus, but with a bit of crunch/texture too.
And then you definitely want to sprinkle some more sesame seeds over the top. That’s just common sense really!
