Sweet Potato Hummus Recipe

 

Yeilds 3 cups

In our house we love hummus but for me, the loads of oil is just to much for my system to handle. This oil free version is wonderful. I like a very smooth and creamy style, for a thicker hummus, use less liquid.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Sweet Potato

1 15oz can Garbanzo Beans, no salt

1/2 - 3/4 Cup Garbanzo Bean liquid

1 Tablespoon Tahini

2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice or Apple Cider Vingar

1 Garlic Clove

1 teaspoon Chili Powder

1/2 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

1/4 teaspoon Salt (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Cut Sweet Potato into large cubes. Steam for 10 minutes or until soft. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a pan, roast garlic until slightly browned
  3. Drain Garbanzo beans, keep the liquid and set aside.
  4. In a food processor or high speed blender add all ingredients, adding chickpea liquid 1/4 cup at a time until smooth and creamy.
  5. Adjust seasonings to taste.
