Pumpkin Hummus

‘Tis the season of the pumpkins. This year, instead of a rich and creamy pumpkin cheesecake, or a chocolate chip pumpkin muffin, I decided to opt for a much simpler yet healthy option.


Did you know that although most hummus is made with chickpeas, you could also make this with beans? In this recipe, I actually made my hummus with Ayam brand canned baked beans!
