NOTES:

  • If you are using dried beans, soak them overnight in the bowl with water, rinse them and cook for around 20-25 minutes. You can also use canned beans if you prefer. 

  • I roasted the pumpkin with the skin in order to remove it easier later on. I skip the skin this time because it will allow smoother and more creamy texture.

DIRECTIONS 

  • Cut the pumpkin into equal slices. Take the baking sheet, add baking paper, and lay the slices next to each other.
     

  • In the small bowl mix dried dill, olive oil, salt, apple cider vinegar. Apply the mix on pumpkin slices. Turn the slices and repeat on the other side. Transfer the baking sheet into the oven and roast pumpkin at 220  degrees for 30 minutes. 
     

  • Once the pumpkin is roasted, wait for a couple of minutes to cool it down. Peel the skin from the pumpkin carefully. Add the skinless pumpkin into the food processor.
     

  • Add beans into a food processor together with fresh dill, scallion, cilantro, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, squeezed lemon juice, and salt. 

 





 

  • Set the food processor on high for 30 seconds. Stop it to scrape it and add nutritional yeast. Blending until it is smooth.
     

  • Serve it in the bowl and decore it with some fresh herbs.
