Pumpkin Hummus

I looked at a lot of hummus recipes before choosing this one from Slash Food. Strange as it may seem, it was the only one that contained chick peas, which I thought is essential for hummus. I also liked the cumin, garlic, and cayenne for spices as opposed to the routine cinnamon/nutmeg found in some others. This recipe contains just one tablespoon of the calorie heavy tahini, which only adds to its healthy aspects. This might just be my favorite recipe so far. I thought nothing could beat that buckle, but I really like this stuff.

It's easy to make and makes a perfect snack or impressive hors d'ouerve. I sprinkled parsley and a little paprika on it. Notice the cute little plate, a gift my mom brought back from Portugal. It doesn't have a bird on it, but I like it anyway.
