On crackers, with crudité, scooped over spooky-looking spaghetti – doesn’t matter how it’s served, this bright-orange hummus dresses up any dish with fall flavor. Unlike pumpkin-spice-everything-else on shelves right now, it’s a bit more heat than sweet, thanks to a sprinkling of cumin, cayenne and turmeric. No need to disguise boldness here! In fact, to make it an even more unforgettable snack, swap your serving bowl with a hollowed-out pumpkin. It’s the ultimate festive treat of the season!
