Homemade Pumpkin Hummus

Homemade Pumpkin Hummus

I love simple recipes that require convenient, flavorful ingredients. As the seasons change, I keep an eye out for fresh, seasonal produce that I can incorporate into some of my favorite recipes. This simple take on pumpkin hummus is the perfect source of plant-based protein. It pairs well with crudité or any fresh veggies you have lying around in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy it! Tag us @delaheart with your creations.
