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.

  • Poke holes all over sweet potatoes with a fork.

  • Roast sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until soft, about 45 minutes; let cool. Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise.

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! Read More

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

Oh wow! This is one of the best recipes on this site. Absolutely LOVE it!! The coriander is a key ingredient and gives the recipe a distinctive taste. Please do not make the recipe without it and then review it with only 3 stars because the recipe was 'bland'. I did substitute 2 T. toasted sesame seeds for the tahini because I didn't have the latter. Read More

I loved this recipe and even my kids who don't really like hummus and definitely don't like squash ate it. I had some roasted butternut squash so I used that instead of sweet potatoes. I also blended 2 T. sesame seeds in my blender before adding the rest of the ingredients instead of using tahini. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. It was delicious! Read More

In all fairness I didn't really follow the recipe.. skipped the garbanzo beans all together and just used sweet potatoes. Added cumin garlic olive oil chili oil salt and tahini to taste. Its a wonderful idea for changing up the old hummus routine and the recipe is flexible enough to suit anyones taste. Read More

I love this recipe. I use 3 Tbsp of olive oil one clove of garlic ( I make my own tahini by roasting sesame seeds and grinding so easy) added 4 Tbsp of lemon juice and lime zest because I use the myer lemon and they just don't zest well. Great hummas!!!! Read More
