Sweet Potato "Hummus"
In the mood for homemade hummus but don't have any garbanzo beans on hand? Sweet potatoes work just as well! Of course, since the name 'hummus' comes from the Arabic word for chickpeas, one can make a strong argument that this isn't real hummus, but you'll find that this sweet potato version offers a near-identical experience but with a slightly sweet finish reminiscent of red pepper hummus. You'll incorporate the classic flavors of tahini, garlic, olive oil, and lemon to taste and let them blossom for a few hours before breaking out this hummus for all to savor.
