Creamy pumpkin dip
with crispy turmeric chips

Fall is just around the corner, and that means it’s pumpkin season. Although pumpkins are known for their rich, savory, vegetable-like quality, this bright orange food is actually a fruit. That’s because pumpkins are a product of a seed-bearing plant that flowers, as opposed to a vegetable that is the edible portion of the plant. Regardless of what one calls it, the variety of delicious recipes made from the pumpkin is what’s most impressive. From pies to pasta, cookies to roasted hash, soup to bread, the versatility of this unassuming fruit are as endless as a pumpkin patch in the middle of October.

For me, fall marks the season of entertaining. From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, my kitchen is in a full-force mode when it comes to making delicious, creative recipes to please a crowd. One of my fall favorites to serve my guests is my creamy pumpkin dip with crispy turmeric chips. Since I love combining flavors and ingredients from around the world to create a unique take on what might otherwise be a traditional recipe, I combined the flavors of pumpkin which is eaten through out the globe, with turmeric traditionally used in Indian, African, and Middle Eastern cultures. The combination of texture and flavor creates a light and flavorful appetizer that is perfectly suited for a fall menu at your next gathering.
