  1. Cut off the top of the pumpkin and remove all the pumpkin seeds present inside it. Then scoop out the flesh from the bottom and the top.
  2. Microwave the pumpkin at the ideal temperature of 200C/ 180C and then cut the pumpkin into pieces and roast it with garlic and a good amount of oil. After you are done with this, season it well and leave the baking tin for about 45 minutes to bake properly. You will realize it is done well when it is tender and soft to touch. Leave out the tin to cool for a little while.
  3. Use a food processor to collect this baked pumpkin, with the garlic and oil and juices collected from roasting, add lemon juice, tahini pastes, and canned chickpeas. You can season this well with salt and then blend the mixture into a paste- if you feel like the paste is grainy or thick, you can add more oil to give it a smooth texture. Scoop the entire hummus back into the pumpkin and you can now serve it with peppers, breadsticks, pita chips, or any food of your choice.
