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!
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.
There are just two easy steps to make this wonderful hummus: the roasting, and 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.
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 in a salad.
Cover and chill in the fridge for 2 days.
