Sweet Potato Hummus

How often do you eat hummus? It's a pretty satisfying and healthy snack -- perfect for snacking with vegetables. I love hummus BUT most hummus you find at the store is filled with unhealthy ingredients and oils. Yikes!

I don't know about you, but I don't want to eat all those preservatives that they stick in those things. And oils -- have you read about what oils do to your body? They basically constrict your arteries. Read more here.

Good news, though, my Sweet Potato Hummus recipe doesn't have any added preservatives OR oil. And with only 6 healthy ingredients you'll be nourishing your body when you make this hummus, not harming it.

Well I've told you what's NOT in my Sweet Potato Hummus, what exactly is IN Sweet Potato Hummus??

A happy, healthy, 6 ingredients:

Sweet Potato (baked)

If you couldn't tell by the name, this hummus contains sweet potato! Sweet potatoes are a nutritious vegetable (yes, vegetable) filled with Vitamin A and plenty of fiber!

Plus, the sweet potato gives this hummus a beautiful orange color. So fall :)

Chickpeas

The key ingredient in hummus is garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas)! Chickpeas have good-for-you plant-protein and pack even more fiber into this hummus.

Aquafaba

You might not have heard the name aquafaba, but you definitely know what it is. Aquafaba is the liquid that you find in a can of chickpeas. Many recipes ask you to drain this liquid, but aquafaba is soo versatile -- it's definitely worth it to keep around. Aquafaba also adds some extra chickpea flavor to the hummus. It's a win-win.

Sunflower Seed Butter

Many hummus recipes call for Tahini, which is made from sesame seeds, but I love the flavor that sunflower seeds give in this recipe. The nuttiness adds a special kick while complementing the sweetness of the sweet potato.

Always choose a brand without added sugars or oils. This is what I used.

Garlic

For flavor and about 8 billion health benefits!

Lemon Juice

A couple teaspoons adds that extra something -- a classic hummus ingredient!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
