You may know by now that I'm a big fan of making things with limited kitchen equipment, and what's so great about this Sweet Potato Hummus is that it's just as delicious, healthy, and easy to make as regular homemade hummus, but it doesn't require a blender!
All you need to do to make this hummus is cook a sweet potato in whatever way you wish, then mash with a fork and mix in some tahini, seasonings and spices!
I really like eating this Sweet Potato Hummus it in a wholemeal pitta bread with some creamy avocado, peppery rocket (arugula) and sweet gherkins.
If you'd like to keep it gluten-free, you can use a gluten-free pitta bread or flatbread, or even serve in lettuce cups. It's also fab atop rice cakes or oatcakes, and makes a delicious dip for tortilla chips!
It's great for packed lunches, but also makes a filling and healthy snack, or even an appetiser for entertaining guests.
