Sriracha Pumpkin Hummus from The Recipe Runner


Garbanzo beans and .
I’m simply going to leave that there for you to churn over for a second.
At first glance, you may say, “I’ll pass on that one.” If that is you, then you are missing OUT.
Initially, my brain was like, “this might be good.” I love, love, love… yes that’s three loves for Sriracha. I confess, I put it on most things, including my pizza. Please tell me that I am not alone! My family still looks at me like I’ve sprouted a third eye as I delicately drizzle Sriracha over my pizza like it’s a French confection freshly popped from the oven. But hey, my taste buds say yes, so who am I to say no?

This Sriracha Pumpkin Hummus has become my new Fall favorite.


Yep, it has TKO’d my previous “nameless” choice.

I made this humorously simple recipe at about 8:30 this morning.

I then sliced a and a few bell peppers.

Performed the ritualistic “taste test.”

“Oh, Now that’s good!”
Clicked a few pictures.

“Taste tested” a few more times.
Edited a few pictures…

By the time I was done editing and posting my “taste test” bowl was empty, and the cucumber and bell peppers were well on their way to being extinct.
Need I say more. Now you just need to make it and feel the bliss I plan on repeating soon.

  1. Dang! That looks like a lovely right there. I love fresh veggies with a flavorful dip. It’s easy to make too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I hope your love for Sriracha doesn’t die. It’s heaven sent!

    • Elizabeth, you just made me laugh out loud. I love your response. I so love me some Sriracha, although I have to do a mental spell check every time I spell it out. :0

  2. I’m not an adventurous eater and can’t really say I am for or against. I have a friend who loves hummus and will be passing this on to her, she’s my official taste tester for foods I don’t eat 🙂 Great pics and post.
