Traditional hummus has become very popular because it is a hearty snack that isn’t bad for us (and we all know those aren’t easy to find). It pairs well with many foods and is low in saturated fat, sodium, and calories. This pumpkin hummus is no different! And that’s not all. Pumpkins are really good for us!
