Simple Ingredients

The base of hummus is chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans and tahini. Tahini is ground sesame seeds that makes a paste that is the consistency of nut butter. If you are hunting in the store for Tahini, it is usually by the peanut butter.

The addition of salt, garlic, and oil are typical staples in hummus. You can get creative though and add your own flavors. That is how this pumpkin hummus came about.

I wanted something more savory with a pumpkin flavor. Traditionally most of the pumpkin specialities during the fall are all sweet.

The Best Sides for Hummus

When it comes to complimenting your hummus with the perfect dipping snack, consider basics like vegetables and crackers.

My favorite crackers are from Mary’s Gone Crackers. They are organic and have simple ingredients to go with them. Vegetables like sliced bell peppers, sliced carrots, or celery sticks pair great with this pumpkin hummus.

Healthy Thanksgiving Ideas

I know healthy and Thanksgiving are probably the most contradicting words, but I want to offer up some inspiration. If you are hosting or heading to a Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving event, consider making a charcuterie board.

Yep, that’s not a typo, I meant to say charcuterie. Charcuterie (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is essentially a meat and cheese board. Traditionally charcuterie boards are made up of cured meats, cheeses, nuts, dried fruits, and crackers. It is like a finger food appetizer platter.

The fun part about the Charcuterie board is you can get as creative as you want with it. So add all of your favorite pumpkin themed snack foods to your board for a friendsgiving appetizer. Pumpkin hummus is a great addition for dipping crackers in!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do this season!
