Sweet & Savory Pumpkin Hummus
Updated: Feb 3, 2022
The holiday time, as it is with many families, is a time for baking and trying new foods. I grew up with a dad that would make all kinds of appetizers, sides, main courses, desserts, and barely even look at a recipe. It really was remarkable to watch, and even better to eat! It was also a time to gather around in the kitchen to talk, laugh, share a drink, and work together on a beautiful meal.
I strive to emulate that in my own home and find myself seeking to try out new recipes around holiday and feast day times of year. That's where this one came about! My husband and I both love pumpkin, and while Starbucks may get rid of it at a certain time of the year, we keep it going through Christmas. It's a yearly tradition to make our own puree which goes towards pumpkin pies and other treats like this one.
Around October we had a home blessing and gathering with friends where we served this and it was a big hit. I think it's the perfect combination of savory and sweet served with a cinnamon pita chip and cup of coffee, delicious!
