Creamy Pumpkin Hummus is the perfect healthy appetizer!

This savory hummus is a beautiful color of orange and would be delicious at a party, or as an after school snack with sweet apples, pears and pita bread.

Hummus only takes about 5 minutes to make in the food processor, which means there’s no reason not to try it! Garnish with pumpkin seeds, rosemary and pomegranate seeds.
