Roasted Purple Potato Hummus

It’s #InternationalHummusDay and we're celebrating with this Purple Sweet Potato Hummus.🍠

We love the earthy taste that the purple sweet potatoes give, the addition of adding this one ingredient to the classic hummus recipe can create a whole new vibrant “dip experience”. It is packed with plant protein and boosting with flavour.

 
Purple sweet potato highlight: We’re swooning over the colour of these superfood potatoes. Aside from giving these sweet potatoes the bright purple colour, anthocyanin plays a key role in protecting our bodies. These antioxidant rich compounds have a positive effect on gut health, support hormone balance, powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and boosts the production of cytokines that regulate immune response.

 

Ingredients  
  • 1/2 cup dried chickpeas soaked overnight
  • 1 medium sized purple fleshed sweet potato
