Autumn Pumpkin Hummus
This Autumn Pumpkin Hummus is fall-snackin’ fabulous. It’s super healthy, deliciously savory, and mildly sweet. Great as an appetizer or party snack.
Ever wish you’d thought to capture a certain moment on camera — but by the time you thought of it, it was too late?
Moments like outings with good friends you don’t see often (but were having way too much fun to stop for selfies.)
Moments when your offspring are sweetly huddled together working a project (but snapping a photo would alert them to your sneaky presence and ruin the thing.)
Or that moment when you enter a room to find your tween bulldog hanging his head in shame because his new little egg-crate mattress is scattered around him in chewy-shreds (but you were too busy yelling to consider this a photo opp.)
Right. That last one only happens to me. Wish I’d thought to Instagram it, since there won’t be another egg-crate mattress.
[He’s sooo lucky he’s cute.]
What this has to do with hummus, I’ve no clue.
Except I did remember to take a pic of this delicious Autumn Pumpkin Hummus before the moment vanished…
This pumpkin hummus is creamy, smooth, rich, yet super-healthy all at once. It’s savory yet mildly sweet and largely addictive.
It’ll be an instant conversation starter at any fall get together, because pumpkin.
Break out those pita chips and munch guiltlessly away. Enjoy!
