Made this today to dip fresh bread into for lunch, along with the staple of extra virgin olive oil mixed with balsamic vinegar. I didn't bother grating the garlic, just roughly sliced it before dropping it into the food processor, and I also added some extra lemon juice, salt and pepper to suit my taste buds. Was told by one of my lunch guests that it was THE BEST humus they have ever had! The pumpkin gives it a lovely texture and sweetness, as well as colour. Will definitely make this again.
