Pumpkin Hummus

I am so proud of this recipe! It’s pretty rare that I publish a recipe the same day that I eat it but what can I say? I was just too excited for you guys to try this fantastic savory pumpkin appetizer.

Hummus is a pretty easy dish. If you have tahini (sesame paste) in the house, you can make it in five minutes in the food processor. Pumpkin hummus is a fun fall twist to the popular starter. The honey and pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (a pantry staple at my house) makes this dip a winner.

Serve it with pita chips in a shallow bowl drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with paprika, pumpkin seeds, and chopped Italian parsley.

This is a super healthy snack, if you care about that sort of thing. I think this would also be just delicious served with beet chips. Can you imagine? Yum! It’s almost too pretty to eat, and yet I ate a third of the bowl immediately after making it. That’s the beauty too – you don’t have to wait thirty seconds before digging in! Leftovers (if there is any!) will keep for several days in the fridge.
