Easy Curried Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is hands down one of my all time favorite foods. I’m one of those people who buys a tiny container of it and before I know it, I’ve eaten the entire thing in one sitting. It’s that good.

For that reason, I’ve mostly stopped buying pre-made hummus at the grocery store and instead making my own at home. It’s so cheap to make and you can make a huge batch, which makes it not quite as noticeable when you eat a lot of it 🙂

The other great thing about making your own hummus is that you can make whatever flavor you want! I have a simple base recipe that I always use (chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon, salt) and then I love to mix it up and make fun flavors. Since it’s now officially fall (yah!) I thought it would be fun to make a pumpkin version.

An ingredient that is pretty high on my list of favorite things is curry powder. It gives such an amazing flavor to everything you put it in. I feel like it almost has an addicting quality to it, you don’t want to stop eating! It also has a nice warming aspect to it and I think it’s perfect for fall.

Another reason I love hummus so much is because it’s so versatile. You can have it as an appetizer with crackers and veggies, put it in a salad for a nice creamy bite, slather it onto a sandwich or even use it as a flatbread topping.

I hope you enjoy this easy curried pumpkin hummus as much as I do!
