Wrap garlic (cloves or whole head) in tin foil and bake in a 300ºF oven for about one hour until tender. If using fresh pumpkin, roast/bake it at the same time. Remove both from the oven to cool and remove the skins from the garlic and skins and seeds from the pumpkin.
Meanwhile, sauté the chopped onions in olive oil until translucent. Cool slightly.
Add all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings including lemon juice, salt, and spices. Serve with pepitas (pumpkin seeds) sprinkled on top with pita bread, or vegetables of choice including celery sticks, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower or snap peas.
