Sweet Potato Hummus

I’ve already shared this sweet potato hummus recipe as part of a toast snack, but it’s so freaking good and I talk about it so frequently that I think it deserves its own blog post.

I eat it with pita chips and veggies, and also spread it on whole wheat sandwiches along with avocado, spinach and tomatoes. It’s delicious—I probably eat that for lunch at least four days a week.

Yields 2 ¼ cups

  • 1 cup packed mashed sweet potato (about 1 large potato)
  • 1 ½ cup chickpeas (about 1 can, rinsed)

  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp tahini

  1. Peel the potato and cut it up into chunks. Boil until soft when poked with a fork.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Using a food processor, blend together.
  4. Refrigerate until cool.
  5. Serve.

It’s a crazy week over here because I’m moving tomorrow (I’ll talk more about that later) so I’ll have to add the nutrition info for this hummus another day.



  1. Great recipe going to try and make it soon

  2. OMG this is a must try, I love both hummus and sweet potatoes! Thaks so much for sharing!

  3. I love the added antioxidants of sweet potato! I wonder if there’s a way to eliminate the chick peas and replace them with something that’s low-carb friendly… hmm…
