Place the pumpkin flesh in a food processor and process until a puree forms. Scoop the puree in to a bowl.
Using a clean food processor, process a clove of garlic. Drain the chickpeas, tip the chickpeas in to the food processor a long with the pumpkin puree, salt, cumin, maple syrup, olive oil and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Blend thoroughly until smooth. If too thick use a small amount of left over chickpea water or more oil.
