If you want to be a true seasonal locavore you will need to expand your repertoire of sweet potato recipes. Sweet potato hummus is a great idea. You can serve it in collard green wraps, dip pita chips, dip veggies, or just as a side dish. Here is the basic recipe.
- 2-3 baked sweet potatoes
- 1 can of chick peas drained
- Juice of 1 lemon
- ¼ cup tahini
- 2-3 tablespoons of good olive oil
- Your favorite spices. Choose any of these that you like
- Curry powder
- Cayenne powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
Throw it all in a food processor until smooth. You can thin it to the consistency you like with water or coconut milk.
