How to cook the pumpkin
You can either boil or roast the pumpkin.
Place chopped pumpkin pieces in a pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes, or until soft enough to pierce with a fork. Drain and remove the skins from the pieces of pumpkin before using to make the hummus.
Place chopped pumpkin pieces on a baking tray and drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and soft enough to pierce with a fork. Remove the skins from the pieces of pumpkin before using to make the hummus.
