If youre a regular reader of my blog, you probably already know I love Mediterranean food. Whether Im choosing a restaurant or choosing what Im going to cook for dinner, recipes inspired by Italian, Provençal, Greek, Turkish and North African culinary traditions usually make it to the top of my list.
Im not only a fan of these dietary traditions because theyre so tasty, but also because studies have shown that Mediterranean diets have less-than-joyous symptoms .
Being a nutritionista who counts herself rather handy in the kitchen, I thought Id tackle the problem head on by creating a gluten-free flatbread that would be right at home at any tapas. Im so pleased with how it turned out, but even the tastiest flatbread recipe is a little ho-hum without a great spread to go with it. Since I was on a roll, I went ahead and created a sweet potato hummus that pairs perfectly with this flatbread. I love the rich orange colour the sweet potato gives this recipe. Its so much prettier than your average hummus! It's also higher in antioxidant carotenoids and fibre!
