Paleo and Low Carb Pumpkin Hummus Recipe

I am crazy about hummus and pumpkin and of course anything in a dip form. I have made eggplant baba ghanoush many times from my recipe and it has been a big hit at parties. I had the idea of making this paleo and low carb pumpkin hummus recipe recently when I got a bunch of pumpkin at the store. It only takes a few minutes and you’re ready to go! This can be an appetizer or a whole meal for one person. Read my post about why beans are not a health food here.
