White Bean & Pumpkin Hummus
3 (6-inch) whole-wheat pitas, each split in half horizontally to form 2 rounds
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 garlic cloves, chopped
How to Make It
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400°.
Step 2: Lightly brush rough sides of pitas with olive oil; sprinkle with kosher salt. Cut each pita half into 8 wedges; arrange wedges in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes; rotate pans, and bake 5 additional minutes or until crisp and golden.
Step 3: While chips bake, place pumpkin puree and remaining ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth (about 30 seconds).
Serve pumpkin spread with pita chips.
