Pumpkin hummus vomit! This was my favourite bit, thanks Adam you wonderful man! Here is his recipe…

-Dice your favourite and most orange-fleshed squash (he used a mix of crown prince and kuri, kabocha is wonderful for this too, butternut would be fine of course but do try the more interesting and rich flavoured squashes that are available at this time of year)
-Toss in olive oil and roast in a hot oven until soft.
-Pulse in a food processor with a similar volume of rinsed and drained tins of chick peas, salt and pepper to taste, a big scoop of tahini, a few crushed cloves of garlic and the juice of a large lemon. Drizzle olive oil as you pulse.
-Stop drizzling olive oil and pulsing when you reach your desired consistency.
-Taste for seasoning, adding more lemon/tahini/garlic/salt as you like.
-Serve coming out of a grotesquely carved pumpkin with bread sticks, flat breads, toast, carrot sticks….or whatever you fancy eating it with.

Simple and spectacular.
