This recipe is from our good friend, Chef Christine Ferris. It uses butternut squash in place of garbanzo beans, making it a perfect addition to any fall menu. If you are like us you start all your family gatherings with sparkling wine and appetizers. This appetizer pairs exceptionally well with sparkling or crisp white wine. Serve the hummus with pita chips or veggies.
