In a blender, combine chickpeas, water, first amount of oil, honey, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic. Blend until mixture is smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
Add first amount of Warming Spice Blend and salt to the mixture, blend until fully incorporated.
Add pumpkin puree and blend until mixture is thick and smooth. Hold refrigerated until needed. Bring up to room temperature for service.
For each serving, plate 1 cup of prepared hummus. Garnish with 1 tablespoon each of olive oil and roasted pepitas and a teaspoon of the Warming Spice Blend. Serve alongside desired accompaniments at room temperature.
This pumpkin hummus is a great stand alone appetizer when served with these Warming Spiced Parsnip Chips, but also works great as a spread in sandwiches or wraps.
