Golden hummus

Prep 15 min
Makes 2 Cups



medium sweet potato
540-mL can
large lemon
1 pinch
1 pinch
1 tbsp
dark sesame oil


  • Pierce potato with a fork, then place in microwave on a piece of paper towel. Microwave on high until very soft, 4 to 6 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut in half. Using a spoon, scrape flesh into a food processor.
  • Rinse and drain chickpeas. Add to potato. Squeeze 3 tbsp juice from lemon. Add to potato along with sesame oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Purée until smooth. Spoon into a serving bowl. Serve with cucumber rounds, steamed fiddleheads or crackers.
  • Hummus will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to 2 days.

This is an easy way to add nutrients to a dip. Start with a container of store-bought hummus, then give it a healthy glow with vibrant sweet potato.
