Ordinary hummus gets a pumpkin-spired makeover!

You haven’t had hummus quite like this before! Spicy Pumpkin Hummus is perfect for parties or get-togethers. Serve a batch of this uniquely-flavored spicy treat with toast, as a dip for apples & veggies, or with a plate of whole wheat pita bread.

The key ingredient in most hummus recipes, is tahini, which is a paste made from hulled sesame seeds. When opening a can of tahini, you will notice the oils are separated from the ground seeds and has an appearance similar to natural peanut butter. Simply stir the tahini and enjoy in a batch of Spicy Pumpkin Hummus.
