‘Tis the season of all things finger-food and dip. And appetizer and snack.
Though Thanksgiving was yesterday’s rage, we’re still loving on all the sweet potato and butternut squash recipes around here. No matter that our lawn is a blanket of white; fall has another 20 days left, and we’re not short changing it.
Sweet potatoes are boss. They’re the super tuber, y’all. They’re loaded with beta carotene, vitamins (like A, B, and C!) They’re full of healthful minerals and is on EWG’s clean 15 list. All the good stuff.
Lookin’ at you, Sweet Potato Hummus.
This might just be the easiest and most delish way to serve up plenty of sweet potatoes. It’s both a crowd pleaser at parties and a satisfying snack at home. Even The Littles devour this healthy dip with crispy pita chips. Way better than random snacking.
I love when food is all natural and the colors are gorgeous all by their unaffected selves. There’s zero artificial anything in this beautifully golden sweet potato hummus.
The flavors of this hummus meld together into perfection, bite after bite. It’s sweet, savory, smooth, and creamy. Without any cream.
Here’s to savoring every single last day of fall.
