With the arrival of fall, I am turning more toward squashes and harvest produce for inspiration. I’m still not quite ready to dive into pumpkin spice everything, but I’m inching my way into the season with touches of cinnamon and winter squash (check out my harvest bowl recipe from last week if you haven’t). This bean-free spiced pumpkin hummus features both flavors, and makes for a lovely autumn twist on my original bean-free hummus recipe.
Cheers and enjoy!
