Hands down this Smoky Sweet Potato Hummus has become my go-to snack. It’s the right mix of savory-slightly sweet that when paired with crispy chips or veggie sticks I dare say is the perfect snack!
For fun I looked up the definition of “snack” online.
snack /snak/ noun
1. a small amount of food eaten between meals.
“not many people make it through to the evening meal without a snack”
Unexpected and rather humorous:
2. a sexually attractive person.
“it’s clear from the pics that her new husband is a total snack”
Back to the Hummus :) Every time we bake sweet potatoes I throw a couple extra in the oven to have on hand when a hummus craving kicks in. Besides being my favorite healthy snack it makes a really nice “just because” gift for a friend.
The ingredients are pretty straight forward. Cooked sweet potato, tahini, lemon juice, fresh garlic, olive oil and a generous sprinkle of my new favorite seasoning Braai South African Spice Blend.
Smoked paprika, dried basil, dried minced garlic, and sea salt bring a warm deep flavor nicely balanced by the creamy sweet potato.
Have you tried these Sweet Potato Corn Chips?? They are a supreme sidekick for this hummus. Super crispy but in a light and airy sort of way. Simple Truth Organic is a Kroger Supermarket brand.
