Spiced Pumpkin Hummus
Hummus is a healthy snack year round, but this time of year I like to give it a seasonal twist and add pumpkin! I often times have canned pumpkin left over from another recipe I have made and this is the perfect way to use it. Not only that, it adds nutrients as well! This hummus doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie though, it is savory. I add warming spices, cumin, coriander and chipotle powder to give this an exotic twist. I like to make this at the beginning of the week, so I have something to snack on when I want something quick and healthy. It is perfect with seeded crackers or veggies, or even spread on sandwiches!
