Hummus is one of our go to healthy snacks. It’s great for in between meals when we get a bit hungry and it’s fairly easy to make from scratch. We love adding different ingredients to hummus, hummus can sometimes be a little bland so adding different ingredients makes this healthy snack more enjoyable.
What makes this hummus different is that instead of using a traditional spice blend mixture found in most hummus dips we used warm spices that complement the butternut squash like cinnamon, cumin, coriander and nutmeg.
The toppings really make the difference. Personally I eat with my eyes first. With hummus being such a boring snack as it is, I think because we associate it as something healthy, it’s just not that exciting to eat. We topped our hummus with brown butter and fried sage. Its soo good and really elevates the hummus. On top of that we roasted some pumpkin seeds and chopped peanuts for an added crunch and sprinkled some extra spices on top like smoked paprika and cinnamon. Feel free to add some of your favorite hummus toppings!
We like our hummus to be thick and creamy, almost whipped so it’s really smooth. The sweetness from the butternut squash really comes through in this hummus combined with the nuttiness you get from tahini and of course the warm spice blend, brown butter and fried sage makes for a delicious rich hummus.
Get creative with your toppings and dig in!
We hope you enjoyed this hummus recipe!
