So, I couldn’t really call this blog “That Hummus Life” without having some pretty sexy hummus recipes on here, right?
Hummus and sweet potatoes go together like Beyoncé and booty shaking. Aka very well. And and coriander gives it that extra layer of taste sensation… Are you salivating and dreaming up of ways to pair this hummus yet?? If not, you should be! Here’s the recipe- only vague measurements are given because you can easily alter the recipe to your tastes. Do you like the burn of raw garlic? Ok, add more garlic! If you like that extra lemony tang, add more lemon juice. If you like the sesame creaminess of tahini, add more of that.
Sweet potato and coriander hummus
1 can of chickpeas, Iiquid drained and reserved (save a spoonful of chickpeas to garnish if you want!)
1/4-1/2 liquid from chickpeas (or water)
1 garlic clove
1 handful of coriander (cilantro) roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup tahini
1/2 cup sweet potatoes, cooked (I roasted mine)
Pinch of salt/pepper to taste
* garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a spoonful of chickpeas and some chopped coriander
Drain the chickpeas and add to the food processor with the rest of the ingredients. Add the liquid and blend. Keep adding more liquid until it is the consistency you like. Then taste! Add whatever flavour you feel is missing, if any.
Garnish with a drizzle of olive oil, a spoonful of chickpeas and some chopped coriander. Serve in a sandwich/bagel with salad/roast veg, dip veg into it, put on rice crackers with avocado and tomatoes… The possibilities are endless 😉 (well, nearly). Enjoy!
* if you are interested in the food processor I have, it is the Bosch MCM4100 compact food processor and it’s amazing, it’s my baby! Hahaha! Check it out here
