Savory Pumpkin Hummus Savory Pumpkin Hummus with baked pita chips Savory Pumpkin Hummus recipe Jenny and I are jetting off on a quick little business / pleasure trip next week and I could not be more excited to have a tiny little break. I need one pretty bad because little things are starting to set me off. Like when my landlord comes and blocks the entire driveway to everyone that lives here instead of pulling up into an empty parking spot to water the ‘front lawn’ which is really dirt. Or when you’re at the vet and the crazy lady next to you asks what is wrong with your cat, and you tell her, and she responds with “maybe it’s just time to let go, you know?” At that moment in time I could only picture myself as Grumpy Cat and the word NO floating above my head in all caps while my expression says everything. So me being a grumpy cat these days, all I want to do is watch Nashville on TV and eat snacks. Lucky for me (and you) we have this fall inspired Savory Pumpkin Hummus. I really love hummus situations because it’s so easy make. This one with pumpkin is my new favorite. The pumpkin is such a nice departure from your typical hummus flavor and I really love the flavor of this savory hummus with the garlic and cinnamon. So satisfying! Excuse me while I pig out on my new found love of Savory Pumpkin Hummus and try to de-grumpify myself. Bye!

2 pitas, each cut into 5 long triangles
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon smoked paprika

    This hummus looks divine – I’ve never had pumpkin hummus but I love both pumpkin AND hummus so I’m excited to give it a try! I hope you can relax on your vacation! <3

    In your head were you all "MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO LET GO!?" to that lady? Because I probably would've went full rageface on her. True story. Some people…

      That would have been a perfectly acceptable response, in my opinion. I was wondering how kitty was doing; sorry to hear “still ill.” My thoughts are still with you!

    I am going to try this with butternut squash. I bought a bag of frozen butternut squash (I hate cutting that big thing!) and I haven’t been inspired lately with something new and was going to resort to the traditional butternut squash soup! (Although that isn’t bad either!)

    Who says that?!?!? What a jerky lady! This hummus looks like just the right thing to dive into for comfort. I am all about savory pumpkin recipes these days!

      She was literally crazy. She brought in a cat to see if it had a microchip, which it did, and then was sayings things like “oh he’s better off with me anyway! They lost him!” Insane cat lady if I ever saw one.

  9. SuperCutePetContest Not Specified Not Specified

    Wow, I don’t think I would have been able to restrain myself had anyone said that to me. Plus, being at the vet with a sick kitty stresses you out even more!

    I have to make this. I can’t even imagine what hummus will taste like with pumpkin!

    I’ve made a couple of different kinds of hummus but never pumpkin – this looks so good and perfect for autumn/hallowe’en. I will make this!

    Love this. It is now spring and I still have pumpkin in the freezer. I eat Hummus when I crave sweets. It works for me but it does mean I make a ton of hummus.

    I hope your kitty got better. I had to put mine to sleep before Christmas but I would have been vary upset if someone had said that to me that.
