Is hummus healthy
Hummus is packed with vitamins and minerals and hummus also contains a good amount of protein and fiber.
Of course, like with anything, balance matters. I don't recommend sitting and eating the entire container in one sitting. But yes, it's healthy as part of a balanced diet.
Keep in mind what one person considers healthy may differ from the next so I recommend you look at the recipe card for nutritional information and decide for yourself.
Be sure to use canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling. This is a savory pumpkin hummus and canned pumpkin pie filling with result in a sweeter version that might not play well with the spices.
