Grind the pumpkin, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, garlic and cumin in a food processor or a mixer until it is almost smooth. Add the lemon juice and grind further until well combined.
With the motor running, add the olive oil in a thin steady stream until smooth.
Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl, pour a little more olive oil on top and sprinkle the sumac. Serve with lavash or pita chips or store in an airtight container and use as a spread as needed. This will stay good in the fridge for a week.
