Ingredients

One small sized sweet potato (which should be around 80-90g)

100g chickpeas (canned, rinsed and drained)

2 garlic cloves

1 tsp olive oil

1 tsp tahini

2 tbsp lemon juice

Spices: 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp chilli flakes (if you like it a little spicy), 1 tsp cumin

Water

Method

Bring some water to boil in a saucepan and add your sweet potato. It should take around 15 mins for it to soften. Check by putting a fork into it.

Once ready, set to the side and let it cool down. Peel the potato and cut it into chunks.

In a blender, add in the garlic cloves and the sweet potato. Give it a mix. Add in all other ingredients and give it a good mix. You might want to add some water to adjust its consistency.

And VOILA! The best hummus you’ll ever have is now ready!

Enjoy with pitta bread, roasted vegetables or anything you fancy 😉.
