It’s pumpkin time! I know I haven’t posted too much this holiday season but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been in love with all things pumpkin. Including this easy pumpkin hummus. That’s right, hummus and pumpkin combined! It’s the perfect little holiday appetizer or late-night snack. 

Plus it’s so easy to make you’re done in just 10 minutes. As you all know I’m throwing a little Friendsgiving party this year and I plan on making this appetizer because you simply can’t go wrong with a simple recipe that is packed with this much flavor. 

Trust me, if you like hummus, pumpkin, maple syrup, and smoked paprika this dish is for you!

Of course, I served mine with seedy crackers but it’s also a tasty option for dipping all those crunchy vegetables. AND I made sure to top it with lots of goodness because what is hummus if not for the toppings? I went with roasted pumpkin seeds, crushed red pepper flakes, sesame seeds and a sprinkle of extra smoked paprika. 

The smoked paprika will bring a delightful smoky flavor to the dish so if you substitute with regular paprika keep that in mind. Not all paprikas are the same.
