I have found another delicious way to use my homemade pumpkin puree – pumpkin hummus. This creamy, orange-hued dip is to die for! The natural sweet flavors of the pumpkin, along with a dash of spices spike up the yum factor manifold and is bound to make its takers happy. Apart from being great taste wise, this pumpkin hummus also gives you a chance to show your own creativity.

So play around with the ingredients- pep it up with a hint of red/chilli pepper or whiz in more pumpkin puree. But no matter how you prepare it, don’t forget to serve it with tortilla or pita chips!
