Roasted Sweet Potato Hummus
Roasted Sweet Potato Hummus has never been better! If you are a little skeptical about trying our sweet potato hummus because you have never tried it before, we would invite you to dig right in. This sweet potato hummus recipe is delightful. It is almost like you pick up a little more of the rich flavor with every bite. The color of this hummus is also gorgeous. It brightens any table and works for any season. We might note that when we make this same recipe with a yam it is, “Oh So Yammy”!
This Roasted Sweet Potato Hummus seems to give up a fair amount of starch after making it so if you plan on keeping it in the refrigerator, you may want to add a little more water than usual in order to keep the consistency light and creamy. We scoop this delicious sweet potato hummus into a serving dish and sprinkle with sesame seeds and add a little fresh parsley for fun, or sometimes we dot with a little olive oil and a pinch of paprika. We think this roasted sweet potato hummus goes well with your favorite cracker, tortilla chips, pita wedges, or fresh cut veggies.
If you are looking for a gluten-free hummus, we would serve this sweet potato hummus with veggies. We often get asked if hummus is gluten-free. We can tell you that we grow our own chickpeas (garbanzo beans) so they are from our farm to your table. We harvest, haul, and clean them in our own facility. When you purchase our Bare Hummus, Garlic & Herb, and Mediterranean kits, you are purchasing gluten-free packs. So as long as you only use other gluten-free products - yes your hummus will be gluten-free!
