Pumpkin Pie Hummus


It feels like Thanksgiving was just yesterday. I could still taste our delicious Thanksgiving dinner… I was stuffed, but somehow I could eat more. Now, we wait for several more “Food Overeating” rounds. Seriously, holidays are all about giving, sharing and FOOOOOD! But, I am not complaining…

So, let’s talk about this beautiful, sweet and delicious hummus. I think hummus is becoming more and more trendy. If you didn’t notice, big brands are making all types of flavors these days, and I really like every hummus taste; sweet, savory, spicy, etc.

I made this hummus just before Thanksgiving, and it was so good that I made it several times. The first time when I made it, my kids, niece, as well as Nebs, didn’t even want to look at it. They’d say: “you are crazy”… However, when they finally dipped in the hummus sweet graham cracker, oh boy, I couldn’t stop them. My hummus bowl was literally “licked” clean. You wouldn’t believe it, but they started adding whipped cream as a topping like you would on a pumpkin pie. So, yes, I got two thumbs up from my fam.

The taste is unique but somewhat familiar. When the flavors melt in your mouth, it becomes even more familiar, as it tastes almost like pumpkin pie. This could be totally done with roasted or boiled sweet potatoes. Actually, I really like them either way… Maybe a bit more with roasted sweet potatoes because I LOVE sweet potatoes, but if you like pumpkin pie, I am sure that you will love this.
