Hummus is a perfect and quick appetizer to put together. I used to buy hummus all the time until one day I decided to make it and I never went back to store bought. This is a savory pumpkin hummus that is great on toasted naan bread. It has a balanced pumpkin flavor and a smooth creamy texture. Very Festive!
