Roast Pumpkin Dip

I love dips, but I must admit, I’m pretty picky about which ones I’ll eat.

I avoid most store-bought dips as they are full of processed oils, preservatives, sugar, and numbers.

Besides,, dips are so easy to make from scratch, literally taking no more than 10 minutes! 

After receiving a massive pumpkin in my vegetable delivery box, I was determined to get inventive and spin a few pumpkin based recipes in ways I thought they might like #pumpkinhaters

I do love me a cooking challenge : – )

I’m happy to report big success with this pumpkin dip recipe, it went down as a perfect after school snack along side some vegetable sticks and wholegrain crackers and they loved it!

Always remember that even though kids may not like a particular vegetable one way, they may like it another. My kids are also happy enough to eat pumpkin when it’s this Pumpkin and Root Vegetable Soup, and paired with some garlic-y sourdough for dipping.
