I don’t know about you but when it comes to fall, I just love everything pumpkin. I found this recipe recently on Cooking Light and I wanted to share it with you. It’s delicious!!


White Bean and Pumpkin Hummus with Pita Chips – 12 servings

3 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas, each split in half horizontally to form 2 rounds
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini or other white beans, rinsed and drained
2 garlic cloves, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. Lightly brush rough sides of pitas with olive oil; sprinkle with kosher salt. Cut each pita half into 8 wedges; arrange wedges in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes; rotate pans, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crisp and golden.

3. While chips bake, place pumpkin puree and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth (about 30 seconds). Serve pumpkin spread with pita chips
