Garlic-Roasted-Pumpkin-HummusI’m trying.  I’m really (really) trying.  Really.  As my Dad used to say “Yes, you’re VERY trying!” (Thanks, Dad)

I’m trying to eat healthier, and to make smarter decisions about what I create in the kitchen.  But DAMN I like me some big flavors in each bite I shove in my mouth!  That’s why I am so glad when I come across twists on snacks that I love.  Twists that make me forget that what I’m noshing on isn’t evil and gooey and decadent.  I mean, who doesn’t love a savory & luscious dip, huh? Well, this girl loves a good dip any day of the week.

Hummus.  A creamy spread that originated in Egypt (or so says the research I found), is generally made from chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, tahini and other minimal ingredients. The marriage of the nutty flavors from the chickpeas and tahini with the sharp garlic and silky olive oil make this a hard-to-resist dish. Used as a dip, a spread, or mixed into vegetables, I could eat it on almost anything.  And because I may have a slightly addictive personality when it comes to food (just slightly, right?), I have a very hard time leaving hummus alone when it is set on a table in front of me.

Remember that whole paragraph above about trying to be smarter about what I eat?  Yeah, that. Part of that process is exploring alternative ways to continue enjoying my favorite snacks & recipes without packing on too many more pounds.  In this case, I found a winner that absolves me of my guilt when I dig in.

Enter Garlic Roasted Pumpkin Hummus. Using two of my favorite items from WildtreeGarlic Galore Seasoning Blend, and Smoky Bacon Grapeseed Oil–I have found my new favorite healthy snack. The organic ingredients make me feel better about using them with the other natural ingredients, and they give this snack the savory punch that I love so much.

Enter this hummus, and enter a happy snacker!
