how to make creamy pumpkin dip

Fall is here, and that means its pumpkin season.  Pumpkins have a rich, savory, vegetable-like quality, but did you know this bright orange food is actually a fruit?  Pumpkins are a product of a seed-bearing plant that flowers, as opposed to a vegetable that is the edible portion of the plant, which makes it a fruit.

Regardless of what one calls it, the variety of delicious recipes made from the pumpkin is impressive. From pies to pasta, cookies to a roasted hash, soup to bread, the versatility of this unassuming fruit is 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-swing creating delicious crowd-pleasing recipes for every occasion. A fall favorite I like to serve my guests is my creamy pumpkin dip with crispy turmeric chips.

The combination of pumpkin enjoyed across the globe, and turmeric, traditionally used in Indian, African, and Middle Eastern cultures makes a light and flavorful appetizer perfectly suited for a fall menu that most people will enjoy.

If you are hosting Thanksgiving, or want to bring a delicious appetizer to the gathering, try my Creamy Pumpkin Dip with Crispy Turmeric Chips.  It’s a crowd-pleaser!
