Sweet Potato Hummus
Aha! Another inspired recipe from my travels. When we were in Colorado I got to shop at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage. One of my absolute FAVORITE natural food stores. Too bad they’re not east of the Mississippi! Anyway, I bought some sweet potato hummus. It was good but, yikes, way too salty for me. Also, of course, added oil. Bleh. So I adapted it for us! I mean, how insanely simple. Simple, I tell you! It’s really just a classic hummus recipe with sweet potato added, and a little cinnamon. Try it, you’ll love it!
- 1 can no salt added garbanzo beans, drained (Eden brand is the best)
- 1 baked sweet potato, skin removed
- 1/4 cup raw tahini
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Place all ingredients in food processor and purée until smooth. Top with a little more cinnamon.
- Done! How easy, right?
Serve with veggie sticks or some crackers, whatever floats your palate. This stuff tastes amazing. Who knew?
