You’ve probably tried sweet potatoes before, maybe even have been a little creative with them and made your own sweet potato fries. But have you ever tried sweet potato hummus?
How to Make Sweet Potato Hummus
Above you see the ingredients you'll need for this super easy sweet potato hummus recipe. First, peel the sweet potatoes (around 1.5 pounds so usually two normal sized sweet potatoes) and cut them into large chunks. Add them to a pot of boiling water. Cook uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are soft (use a fork to test).
Wearing oven mitts, pour out the potatoes over a strainer. Meanwhile, use a juice squeezer for the lime and lemon juice.
Add the sweet potatoes to a food processor (or high-powered blender) with the tahini, protein powder (Bone Broth Protein, Collagen Peptides or Multi Collagen Protein), chopped garlic, lime and lemon juice, sea salt and pepper. Purée until smooth.
Refrigerate the hummus in an airtight container until cooled. Before serving, garnish with olive oil and cilantro.
