Spiced Pumpkin Hummus

Spiced pumpkin hummus is a great seasonal dip for snack time!

Hello from England! I’m writing this in our flat in London that we rented for 3 days. I can’t wait to share with you my adventures in London and everything we ate. It’s been such a fun trip and it’s definitely been jam-packed and a whirlwind but we’re glad we did it! Exhausted but happy :) look out for a London blog post coming to a screen near you soon!

It’s definitely Fall over here since the weather is a lot chillier than back in the States and a lot of the leaves have fallen. I’m not sure if they’re big on pumpkin over here. I haven’t seen much pumpkin/Fall-inspired menu items here but maybe they just aren’t as into Fall as we are since it’s chilly here year-round so it’s kinda like Fall year-round. Who knows! Anyway, this spiced pumpkin hummus is the perfect Fall hummus for your gatherings.

This spiced pumpkin hummus is seriously the most perfect snack for Fall. Pumpkin + hummus + spices + homemade pita chips = the best game time appetizer. It’s healthy too so you won’t feel too bad about all the beer and pizza you’re about to consume ;) it’s got a very subtle pumpkin taste but the spices are really what give this hummus a great savory note!

I love eating this before a workout or after work when my stomach is all rumbly and wanting a big meal. It does a good job at warding off the hunger for a couple hours. I also love eating this at work with carrot sticks and celery. It’s a great snack to nibble on – way better than that Snickers bar or bag of chips!
