Roasted sweet potato hummus

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the best hummus I've ever ever made in my entire life. I ate a similar one at an israeli restaurant a little while ago and wanted to recreate it at home. So here is a deliciously creamy roasted sweet potato hummus.

It's slighlty sweet, very well balanced ! I made some oven crunchy chickpeas to put on top and added a dusting of smoked paprika, so so good.

Roasted sweet potato hummus :

  • 170g (1 cup) cooked chickpeas
  • 150g (1/2 cup + 2 tbsp) cooked sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • Salt

Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.

Poke the sweet potato a few times with a fork.

Roast it in the oven for 25-30 minutes until it's fully cooked and tender.

Take the skin off the sweet potato and scoop 150g of the flesh.

Add all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until you get a smooth hummus.

Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a few sesame seeds.
