It’s autumn, and you know what that means: it’s pumpkin season! There are lots of yummy sweet pumpkin recipes out there, but I wanted to do something a little different. So I decided to come up with a savory pumpkin dish. That’s how this recipe came to be. 🙂
Packed with protein from the beans and nutrients from the pumpkin, it’s a huge hit at parties and nice to serve something a little more creative than standard hummus.

Savory Pumpkin Dip
I love how easy this recipe is, and how perfect it is for fall! All you have to do is toss all the ingredients into a food processor and puree until smooth.
Essentially, it’s like hummus, but infused with pumpkin flavor. Yum! Of course, it’s perfect for holiday gatherings, but it also makes a great afternoon snack with some crunchy veggies or pita chips.

Pumpkin Dip Ingredients
To make this recipe, you’ll need:
- canned pumpkin (make sure it’s plain/pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling)
- canned black beans (rinsed)
- canned cannellini beans (rinsed)
- extra virgin olive oil
- lemon juice
- cumin (this gives it a delicious rich, smoky flavor!)
- salt & pepper to taste
How to Make this Fall Dip Recipe
Throw all the ingredients into a food processor, and whirl away!
You may need to use a spoon or spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor intermittently, to make sure everything is equally combined.
If your food processor is too small to fit everything at once, you can puree the ingredients in batches, then combine them once pureed.
Lastly, spoon the dip into a bowl. Feel free to add an extra drizzle of olive oil on top if desired.
Arrange tortilla chips, pita chips, crackers, and veggies (or whatever you like!) around the bowl and serve!
Can I make this ahead of time?
This dip is easy to make ahead, and very portable. Just keep it refrigerated in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve.
