Turn everyday hummus into something swoon-worthy. It's as easy as blending in cooked sweet potato, which not only adds a rich deep hue but also pumps up flavour and boosts nutrients. It still makes a great appetizer, or you can use it as the base for a protein-packed vegetarian dinner salad. Trust us, you won't miss the meat.

  • Prep time 10 minutes
  • Total time 4 hours & 30 minutes



Toss sweet potato with 1 tbsp of the oil. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; bake in 400°F oven until browned and tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.

In food processor, purée together tahini, lemon juice, garlic, remaining oil, salt, chickpeas, 1/4 cup water and sweet potato until smooth. Transfer to bowl; refrigerate until cooled, about 4 hours. Stir to loosen before serving. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Take a shortcut by starting with store-bought hummus. Simply blend in cooked sweet potato.

Makes 3 cups.
