Hummus is a staple at our house and this sweet potato hummus is our favorite fall hummus. The sweet potato will surprise you. It is the perfect addition to classic hummus. I also add roasted garlic and rosemary for a boost of flavor. For presentation points, I add crumbled feta cheese, pomegranate arils, and a fresh sprig of rosemary before serving. Don’t skip this step. The garnish makes the hummus extra tasty and beautiful!

You can serve the Sweet Potato Hummus with your favorite Kettle Brand Chips, bring several bags so your friends can choose their favorite. You can never have too many chips! I used Kettle Brand’s Baked Olive Oil Chips and they were so good with the hummus.

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic plus 1 teaspoon olive oil for roasting
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Crumbled feta cheese pomegranate arils, and fresh rosemary sprig, for garnish
  • Kettle Brand Chips for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Scrub sweet potatoes and pierce in several places with a fork. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet that has been lined with aluminum foil.
  2.  Trim about 1/4 inch off the top of the garlic cloves. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil over the the garlic and wrap the garlic in aluminum foil. Place on the baking sheet with the sweet potatoes.
  3. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and starting to ooze. Remove the garlic at 45 minutes.  When the potatoes are soft, remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
  4. When the potatoes are cool, remove the skin. Remove the garlic cloves from the foil and remove the skin. Place the sweet potatoes, garlic, olive oil, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, rosemary, salt, and pepper into a food processor. Blend until smooth. You might have to scrape down the sides and blend again. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, if necessary.
  5. Spoon sweet potato hummus in a bowl. Garnish with feta cheese, pomegranate arils, and a sprig of rosemary. Serve with chips.
  6. Note-you can roast the sweet potatoes and garlic a day in advance. Keep in the refrigerator in a Ziploc bag until ready to use. You can also make the hummus a day in advance, just wait to garnish until ready to serve.

  1. Ooh! OOH! Do you find this hummus to be very sweet with the sweet potatoes, or is it straight up savory? I’m picturing it spread on toast and dipped with cut up veg. But I’m wondering if apple slices could be used as dippers, too? I’m having my family over for a Christmas brunch in a few weeks and this is now on my short list. Thanks!

  2. Thanks. Can you tell me the weight or weight range of the potatos. I’m not sure I’d know large from extra large from giant. Thanks.
