This gluten free Moroccan pumpkin dip is refreshing and tasty. Dips served with chopped veggies or homemade crackers are a great healthy snack for those living gluten free. The inspiration for this pumpkin dip is a store bought one, which is pretty good on all accounts, but this is so much better. The pumpkin gives it a lovely sweetness, the spices add depth of flavour and the lemon juice and coriander make it taste fresh. Devine.
