Sweet Potato Hummus

FoodFood for the Body
January 4, 2012 / By / , , , , , / 2 Comments

So I tried it!  And it’s goooood!  This recipe is in the latest Chaim Magazine, thanks to a gal named Hannah.  It’s raw, it’s healthy, it’s gluten-free, and it’s easy.  Great combo?  I think so!  Click here to check it out in color.  Page 44.  Also included are the my MOST FAVORITE recipes of the holidays.  I had to get family permission to share them. :)  So take advantage! :)

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups of peeled and chopped sweet potatoes (or yams if you have them)
  • 2 Tbsp of flaxseed oil (which I will buy, but didn’t have @ the time so just used a little olive oil)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic (I did 2)
  • 1/2 c. water

Start by washing, peeling, and chopping the potatoes.  Add all the ingreds to a food processor.  (All i had in the mountains was a small magic bullet.)

Now grab the garlic cloves.


Grab a knife, and press the flat side of the knife to shed the peel on the garlic.  (Thanks Rachel!!)

And it worked!!!  The peels just flaked off.  I can’t tell you how amazing this has been for my kitchen efficiency! :)

Now add a couple tablesoons of the oil.  (I didn’t have flax oil, so used olive)

Now a tsp of cumin.

Now add a bit of salt.  1/2 tsp.

Now a couple tablespoons of lemon juice.

Now add a 1/2 cup of water.


Blend it up.  Process it up.  I seem to have problems overloading blenders. :)  The bullet really struggled to make this one work, so my hummus was a bit chunky.  I would recommend a high-powered food processor (NOT a blender), or if you have to use a blender, just do it in a couple rounds. :)

I toasted some tortillas on a flat pan (we didn’t have chips), and it was delightful.
