As it’s cooler now, the garden produce is pretty much done, although we’ve had a pretty warm fall.

Thankfully, one of the things (or rather, two of the things) that are still keeping great since we brought them in are the pumpkins and squash. And with this hummus recipe, it’s perfect. Pureed pumpkin and roasted butternut squash combined with chickpeas and delicious seasonings to create a fall hummus.

This hummus recipe is wonderful with pita chips, but it’s also fabulous on carrots sticks as well. It’s a great snack and it holds well in the fridge for several days.

Since it has chickpeas in it (also called garbanzo beans), it’s packed with fiber, which means it helps to keep you full longer. It’s definitely a little spicy with cayenne pepper and chili powder, but you can always season it to taste.

Give this delicious fall hummus a try. It’ll give your day just the kick of flavor it needs!

      It should last 5 – 7 days in the fridge, but you can also freeze it for up to 6 months.
