Flatiron Foodies: Fields Good Chicken's Butternut Squash Hummus

Fields Good Chicken is a fast-casual restaurant located at 44 East 23rd Street, between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue South. The restaurant is dedicated to the craft of grilled and roasted chicken but this month, the focus is on a tasty side dish. Chef Dan Jackson proudly shares their seasonal hummus recipe that pairs perfectly with with Fields Good's four chicken preparations in this month's Flatiron Foodies recipe.

Fields Good Chicken's Butternut Squash Hummus

  • Two pound butternut squash, peeled, diced into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspooon ginger powder
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup tahini
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Method: Add the squash to a pot, add water just to cover. Cook on low/medium heat until squash is soft, roughly 15 - 20 minutes, and drain. Alternatively, you can steam the squash if your home kitchen includes a steamer.

Let the squash cool to room temperature, and add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, or paprikia, optional. Serve immediately with crudite, chips, flatbread, or with vegetables such as yams, turnips, beets, rutabaga, or celery root.
