Appetizers make me happy. Sometimes I eat “appetizers” for dinner (in larger-than-dinner-sized portions). Sometimes I make appetizers so that I can add them to everything else I eat all week.
Here’s one of them:
Sweet Potato Hummus, inspired by Power Foods
Cut your sweet potatoes into about 1 inch chunks. Fill a large pot with about 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Add the sweet potatoes in a steamer basket and cook until tender. Took about 18 mins for me.
Process the garlic in your food processor so you don’t have to mince it. Add the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, cumin, and salt. Process until smooth. Garnish with paprika.
Serve with pita chips or bell pepper (like I did!). Try not to eat it all in one sitting. But man, this would be good on a sandwich. And everything else I’m eating this week.
