Butternut Squash Dip

Dips and crackers are a match made in heaven. Especially this beautiful golden Butternut Squash Dip and Spelt Chia Crackers.

Whether you’re in need of some snacks for a party or looking for something to nibble on while watching Netflix; this dip and crackers combo is exactly what you’re looking for!

To bring out the most flavor, I roasted half a butternut squash in the oven and spooned the flesh into a blender. Then added chickpeas (for a rich texture), lime juice, salt, and water. It’s easy and delicious.

I’ve drizzled the dip with olive oil and sprinkled it with chopped fresh parsley. So, so good!

I love how you've used the butternut squash to serve the dip, so clever and cute! I must do this. I need to make more dips to go with your pizza crackers (I've made them a few times already, my kids just gobble them out too fast, haha).

Thanks, Kyra! I'm so glad you and your kids love the pizza crackers! The butternut squash dip is absolutely amazing - we had it as a dip and as a spread on dark rye bread and it's so good :)

I never know what to do with butternut, but this is the most inviting idea I've seen yet! I'm all about the dipping :)

The butternut squash is perfect for dips because it's so super creamy. I've never had a problem with finding a good use for butternuts - they're one of my favorite pumpkins/squashs :) I can't believe I'd waiting so long until my first butternut this season. Perfect for cracker dipping too! :) Thanks, Natalie <3
