Sweet Potato Hummus

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"I wanted something easy and fitting for an autumn gathering. I found this recipe and altered it to make it even easier to make. It is a nice combination of naturally sweet and typically savory. Serve with pita wedges, crackers, or cut veggies."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Poke holes all over sweet potatoes with a fork.
  3. Roast sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until soft, about 45 minutes; let cool. Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise.

Add tahini, lemon juice, lemon zest, cumin, coriander, white pepper, and sea salt to mixture; blend until smooth, adding reserved garbanzo bean liquid as needed to make a smooth, creamy hummus.

Using 2 large sweet potatoes instead of 3 and 3 T sesame seeds instead of tahini, I found this to be delicious, especially with chunks of apples!

Nice taste but WAY too thick. Took forever to get it all blended so not really worth the time.
