Sweet Potato & Turmeric Hummus
With the days being shorter and the leaves falling, there are just so many things to love and watch out for this coming autumn.
The Perfect Autumn Hummus
This very simple and yet very delicious hummus to make. You can either bring it to parties or just reward yourself after a long, hard week at work. Other than pumpkin spice-flavored goodies and warm fuzzy blankets, sweet potato hummus can also bring out the festive feeling in you. Here are the ingredients you’ll need along with the instructions to perfect this recipe.
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
½ teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon avocado oil
½ lemon, juiced
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon tahini
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pre-heat the oven to 175ºC / 350ºF. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray and toss together with the spices and garlic.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender then let cool and add to a food processor with the remaining ingredients, except the olive oil.
Blend until combined, then with the motor running slowly, drizzle in the olive oil until smooth and creamy.
Taste test and adjust, then serve with veggie crudités or pita chips. Enjoy!
