Sweet Potato Hummus

My husband, Bo, didn’t schedule any work for two whole weeks so I’m taking things easy with him. I do however have quite a lot of work scheduled so I want to keep meals simple so that we get to do stuff during the day.

This is a super tasty, quick recipe that will fill you up.


2 medium sized sweet potatoes
410 gr chickpeas
2 tablespoons tahini paste
juice of ½ lemon
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp ground cumin
1 clove of garlic
½ tsp smoked paprika powder
salt and pepper to taste


Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into small cubes. Steam them in a closed bowl with a pinch of salt in the microwave for 5 minutes at 1000 watts. Rinse the chickpeas well and place them in a food processor with the other ingredients. Let the sweet potatoes cool, place them also in the food processor and blend all ingredients into a hearty hummus.

Serve on whole wheat tortillas with coriander and grated mozzarella cheese.

Serves 8
