Sweet Potato Hummus ( oil free)

What were you expecting anything other than another sweet potato recipe? What’s not to love about a sweet potato, you can eat it cooked or raw and apparently turn into almost anything. I will say though after this creation I’m taking a breif break from sweet potato recipes, that’s unless I get great recipe idea in my head then we will see.

This hummus was really good. I was planning to make a flat bread with it, but since intermittent fasting I’m more aware of the foods I choose to eat and have been listening to my food brain more and not stuffing myself with added calories if I’m not really wanting it. Lost count of how long I’ve been intermittent fasting for, but today was an off day with poor sleep so I skipped fasting today and I’ll pick it back up tomorrow.

I will say I was starting to have an unhealthy relationship with food counting calories, so I threw that idea out the window and just eat when I’m hungry and don’t stuff my face all day. Well enough about me let me share this yummy recipe with you all.

Sweet potato hummus ingredients:
1/2 of a large peeled sweet potato
1 cup chickpeas
4 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried ginger
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 or 3 medjool dates ( I’ve been up since 530 and am writing up the recipe hours after creating it so start with 2 and taste to see if 3 works)

Directions:
First add the sweet potato to a pot of water and boil ( you could steam or roast it if you prefer it just should be cooked). Once the potato is cooked add all the ingredients to a food processor and blend well.

Enjoy!
