This recipe is based on one my friend Dena gave me months ago, which I finally got around to making. My loss, because it’s great! A nice flavor twist on traditional hummus, which I make all the time. And sweet potatoes add nutritional density that you don’t get from beans alone.
- 1 Large Sweet Potato, boiled until soft and then peeled
- 1 Can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed well
- Juice from 1 Lemon
- 3 Cloves Garlic
- .25 cups Tahini
- .25 cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp Dried Sage
- 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
- 1 tsp Cumin
- Salt & Pepper to Taste
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender until smooth. Great on wraps, as spread or for dipping.
