Recipe For Butternut Squash Dip

A FitSugar Reader Recipe: Butternut Squash "Hummus"

Here's a healthy dip that you can nosh on this weekend! FitSugar reader sprint2thetable posted this recipe for a butternut squash dip in our Healthy Recipe group.

Is a hummus without garbanzo beans still hummus? This recipe contains tahini. It has a hummus-like texture. It involves lemon and a little olive oil. Who cares — it is good and It's mine, so I'm deeming it worthy of the title "hummus."

Learn how to make this recipe after the break!
