Harvest Hummus

Try this seasonal dip that’s enjoyed by one of the school districts the Life Time Foundation has partnered with to improve kids’ meals.
A bowl of Harvest Hummus with raw, sliced veggies on the side.

This recipe was inspired by Naimah Muhammed, a student at Minneapolis Public Schools, a partner of the Life Time Foundation. The district used their grant from the Foundation to purchase kitchen equipment to prepare fresh produce and made-from-scratch foods free of the Harmful 7 — like this hummus. Try it with your preferred veggies for a seasonal take on a favorite dip.

  • Yield 12 servings
  • Prep Time 5 minutes
  • Cook Time 0 minutes



  • 1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin purée or 2 cups cooked winter squash
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2–3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbs. cayenne or chipotle powder
  • 1 tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. tahini (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil


Add all ingredients except for the olive oil to a food processor or blender. Mix until it has the consistency of a coarse paste, about one to two minutes. Slowly add olive oil until the hummus becomes smooth.
