Purple sweet potato hummus

  • 1 cup roasted purple sweet potatoes peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • roasted chickpeas
  • green peas
  • cashew or any other vegan cheese
  • white sesame seeds

Roasted purple sweet potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 200°C
  • Wash your sweet potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a dishtowel.
  • Place on a baking sheet and put them in the oven to bake for 30-45 minutes depending on size.
  • Check at 30 minutes by inserting a fork into the center. They should be soft. If not, return to the oven and check again in 10 minutes. Let them cool down a bit before peeling.


  • To make chickpea flour batter stir together the chickpea flour, turmeric, salt, garlic powder and water in a small bowl. Whisk together until blended completely making sure to eliminate all of the lumps. Cover with plastic wrap and let the mixture rest at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 200 °C. Line a 25 cm cake pan with baking paper and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
  • Put the cake pan with olive oil into the oven. Once the oil gets really hot, pour the chickpea flour mixture into the pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and crispy.
