White Bean Pumpkin Hummus

You may think pumpkin doesn’t belong in hummus…until you try this! Pumpkin is not the star flavor in this recipe, it’s the smoky flavor from the seasonings; however, since pumpkin is a vegetable, it adds volume and nutrition to the serving while keeping the calories low. Serve this with raw vegetables or your favorite whole grain cracker. The color is so festive, this makes a great holiday appetizer that is a smart choice for your health. Enjoy!

¾ tsp. ground cumin

½ tsp. smoked paprika 

1/8 tsp. kosher salt
