This easy, roasted sweet potato hummus is deliciously rich, smooth, creamy and healthy! It is a perfect dip for finger food, in a sandwich, or in a salad!
Not only is this hummus smooth, creamy and utterly delicious, it is super healthy and packed with nutrients!
What’s great about it
Cheap and easy to prepare, it is gluten-free, vegan, and low in calories. It also adds a vibrant pop of colour to any table.
How to make it
There are just two easy stages to make this wonderful hummus: there’s the roasting and then the blending.
- Roasting the sweet potato rather than boiling it, gives a deeper and sweeter flavour. For this reason, I prefer to also roast the garlic, rather than using it raw.
- Then blend all the ingredients together for a smooth hummus, or mash the sweet potato separately with a fork for a chunkier consistency.
How to serve it
Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the top and add a sprinkling of paprika.
Serve at room temperature with pita chips, breadsticks or crudités, spread in a sandwich/burger/wrap, or scoop into small balls to serve around a platter of meats.
Cover and chill in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Trying to comment twice so this might go over twice. I accepted the cookies (wish they were real cookies though. Ha!). Anyway, I LOVE this idea of using sweet potato and I’ll let you know how it goes when I make it. Much thanks for the idea, Nicole. Wishing you a yummy weekend.
Haha! Thank you, it’s so delicious with some roasted cauliflower!
