Ingredients

    2 cups diced, peeled sweet potato (about 225g)
    1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained (and shelled if you have the patience, I did)
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    2 tsp tahini
    2 tsp olive oil
    2 cloves minced garlic
    1 1/2 tsp curry powder
    1/2 tsp cumin
    1/4 tsp turmeric
    a few pinches each of ground ginger and cayenne pepper

Directions

Place sweet potato pieces in a steamer basket and steam until they can easily be pierced with a fork.

Transfer the sweet potato to the bowl of a food processor, along with all other ingredients. Process until an even paste forms, adding more lemon juice if needed.

Serve with pita wedges, chips, veggies, or whatever your heart desires!

Calculation is for 2 Tbsp.

  • I just love this recipe. I used black beans for I'm not a chickpea fan and left out the tahini. I will be making this from now on. - 9/1/11

    I'm finding that if you have good ingrediants you don't need the Tahini. It's to expensive and to high in calories, so I don't miss it. I'll update the recipe when I go to make it again. Thanks for the comment. I'll have to try Black Beans instead of chickapeas.

  • This is very good. I used peanut butter instead of tahini, and threw in some hot red peppers. Pretty tasty! - 8/10/11
