Garlicky Pumpkin Hummus makes a festive Thanksgiving appetizer | Thanksgiving.com

Thanksgiving is always about the main course feast. The beautiful bird, the delicious side dishes and the fancy sweet treats. However, I’m in it for the snacking. My mom always serves her holiday dinner at night so during the day we snack to keep us at bay.

I have always loved serving this pumpkin hummus because it gives a fall twist to the classic hummus goodness. I always use cashew butter in place of tahini but feel free to use whatever nut butter you want in the recipe. This Garlicky Pumpkin Hummus with a touch of lemon makes a festive Thanksgiving appetizer.
