Pumpkin Hummus with Sage + Cranberries

Pumpkin Hummus with cranberries and sage. Vegan + easy to make

Happy Tuesday. Happy unofficial end of summer. Happy first day of pumpkin recipe sharing season.

I was waiting for the unofficial last weekend of summer to pass before I shared a pumpkin recipe. Of course, I have been participating in pumpkin recipe eating and pumpkin beer drinking since the end of July but can we keep that between you and I?

In addition to shopping, grilling, cleaning my house and beer consumption, I made two soon-to-be-shared pumpkin recipes over the weekend – vegan pumpkin spice coffee creamer and vegan pumpkin cream sauce. The pumpkin hummus I’m sharing with you today, well I made it 3 weeks ago. Yeah, I made it in August. I was preparing for pumpkin season early because I love fall and because I know people start looking for pumpkin recipes come early September.

Hey do you remember what I said on Thursday about reducing waste and using items I have in my pantry instead of buying groceries all the time? My goal is to stop the food waste and save money. I’m happy to report that I’ve only gone to the grocery store once since Thursday! This is a HUGE deal and a great accomplishment because I usually go to the grocery store at least twice during the weekend. I’m going to try to avoid the grocery store this week and only go once this weekend. I hope I can do it. I know I can do it.

    I make my pumpkin hummus very similar, but I’ve never ever thought of adding cranberries to it. Just by reading the title I started to picture how great they would be in a pumpkin hummus and now I can’t stop thinking of them. I have to try this, so creative!

      Pumpkin should be year round! There is actually a coffee place in my town that has the pumpkin spice flavor year round. WIN. Thank you for the pin and for visiting, Lindsay.
