 Pumpkin spice makes everything nice, especially when we feel the weather turning towards fall and begin to start thinking about the coming holidays.  We believe we have a trophy worthy pumpkin hummus recipe that brings sheer delight in every way.  This homemade hummus recipe has excellent flavor, and has a light chunky and crunchy texture due to the addition of lightly roasted pumpkin seeds.

Garbanzo beans are a type of legume that offer a range of health benefits- helping to increase satiety, boosting digestion, help to keep blood sugar levels stable, increasing protection against disease, and are a potent package of protein, vitamins and minerals too.  Our homemade hummus recipe will bring some of these very important benefits to you, your family and guests!

Pumpkin hummus is really perfect for anytime but as the leaves begin to change and the day's light becomes a little bit shorter, we seem to jump into warming colors of flavor in every way.

When we are in the kitchen we think the word “sweet” is completely related to taste.  Another meaning for the word “sweet” is pleasing, and this homemade hummus recipe, in our opinion, completely wraps up both of these meanings.  If you are like us, we can’t wait to make several batches of this extremely delicious pumpkin hummus this fall!
