  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  3. Place hummus into a circular bowl and smooth into a dome-like shape.
  4. Cover and chill hummus for a few hours before serving or overnight.
  5. Just prior to serving, create “pumpkin ridges” or lines with a butter knife – just like you would “slice” a pizza. Add small portion of Rosemary in the center as the “pumpkin stem.”
