Pumpkin Hummus

I’m having a lot of fun coming up with other uses for pumpkin other than pumpkin flavored baked goods. While scooping out some pumpkin puree, it made me think of hummus.

I adore hummus. Hummus and pita chips are a serious weakness of mine. So I thought about making a pumpkin hummus.

This is really easy. Just blend a few ingredients in a food processor and it’s ready to go. I ran out of pita chips so I ate these with tortilla chips. Still delicious.
