I like traditional hummus just as much as the next gal, but I thought I'd try something different...Sweet Potato Hummus.
This is what I did:
- 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cooked
- 1 can chickpeas (15 oz.) drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. cumin, or amount to taste
- salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in food processor or blender. Puree until smooth. If it's too thick, add a little bit of water or lemon juice and continue to puree.
Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate.
Serve with pita, crackers and crudites.
