Preparation time:
15 minutes
Makes:
2 Cups

Ingredients

  • 1  medium sweet potato
  • 19 oz (540 mL) can chickpeas
  • 2  garlic cloves
  • large lemon
  • generous pinches of salt and freshly ground blackpepper
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) dark sesame oil

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.

Instructions

  • 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.
