I love hummus! It's a fantastic way to get a protein-rich snack! But because hummus is such an easy, go-to snack, plain ol' hummus can get a little dare I say it dull, even when you're someone who loves chickpeas as much as I do!
Fortunately, there are lots of ways to jazz up a hummus recipe to make things a little more interesting. Lately, I've really been into adding sweet potato to my hummus. It's a great way to make hummus even more full of fibre, which is going to give you the most joyous digestion ever, and it gives a gorgeous golden colour to typically ho-hum beige hummus.
But that colour isn't just about looking pretty, it's a sign that, thanks to those sweet potatoes, your hummus is chock full of antioxidant carotenoids. Carotenoids are vitamin A precursors (meaning that they can be converted into vitamin A in your body) and can help:
Try serving sweet potato hummus with the almond rosemary flatbread I originally introduced this recipe with. You can even take flatbread and hummus from snack to meal status by serving it with my beautifying crunchy detox salad .
