From dipping to scooping, spreading to mixing in, hummus is one versatile food. This gluten-free and vegan savory pumpkin hummus is the perfect flavor for all you fall snacking, cooking, and tailgating!
I make and eat a lot of hummus, yet I slack at giving you hummus recipes! Have no fear, I have a good one for you today. This is my latest hummus recipe and I’ve been enjoying the huge batch I made the last 2 weeks. It’s simple Fall perfection that satisfies the savory pumpkin craving. If I had the choice between a sweet pumpkin dish and a savory one, I think I would go savory! I just love the creamy, rich, undertoned taste of pumpkin when highlighted in a savory recipe.
I don’t think people highlight or appreciate it’s wonderful savory qualities enough. Maybe that’s why I love it so much. The versatility from sweet to savory and everything in between. Just like hummus! Sweet, savory, whatever. I just love foods and ingredients that do that that flavor profile capability. It makes the possibilities endless and the ingredient or food timeless. So opening that can of pumpkin and using it to make this pumpkin pie snack bites as well as this hummus, all from one can, sounds pretty good to me.
This is also a really nifty time of year to start doling out the hummus recipes. Tons of gatherings, parties, and tailgating. ‘Tis the season for good healthy snacking! I mean, have you ever been to some type of get together where there was no dip or hummus? I think not. People like to mingle while snacking. Snacking on something crunchy. Mingling, snacking, and dipping or spreading! Lucky for you, those chips, pretzels, or raw veggies can do some of their own mingling in some seasonal pumpkin hummus! And, get this, it’s healthy, allergy-free, and fat-free! So dip, spread, and scoop away my snacking friends!
