Roasted Butternut Squash & Turmeric Hummus

In the moments when you need to pull it together – a holiday season is especially full of those moments – hummus is a saving grace. It’s quick, healthy, and always disappears in with a blink of an eye. We added butternut squash to make it seasonal and threw in a pinch of turmeric powder to make it antioxidants rich. You can serve it with cucumber slices, crackers, baby carrots, celery, bell peppers, pita, or use it as spread on a slice of a baguette.
