Update: This post originally ran on January 26th, 2014, but we wanted to bring it back as a great springtime recipe!

This post is part of our superfood recipe series from Jill of a Better Happier St. Sebastian.

Sweet Potato Hummus with Almonds + Radicchio

1 3/4 cups chickpeas (1 15 oz can)
1 small sweet potato roasted and peeled, cut into chunks
1/4 cup tahini

2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 tbs olive oil + additional for serving

Rinse and drain chickpeas. In a food processor combine chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and olive oil. Process until a rough paste is formed. Add sweet potato, cumin, ras al hanout, and a generous sprinkling of salt and pepper. To serve, top hummus with freshly ground pepper, a touch of olive oil, almonds, and radicchio.

*Ras al Hanout is a Moroccan spice blend that can be made at home or substituted in this recipe by using 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/4 tsp tumeric, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp cardamon, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper.

This recipe looks amazing! Does anyone have any suggestions for a substitute for the tahini? I’m allergic to sesame and hummus is the food I miss most.


Goodness this looks delicious! I can live on hummus, trying this out very soon!

Oh my goodness! I have never had this sort of hummus, it sounds so so delish.

I used to buy sweet potato hummus at my local farmer’s market and I loved it. I can’t believe I never thought of recreating it at home. I can’t wait to have it again!

I am definitely going to try this…looks insane!

This looks too yum to be true!!! Ahh, I love flavored hummus (ever tried Trader Joe’s Guacamole Hummus- you should!). I will definitely be trying this, however I might be adding these ingredients minus the chickpeas to some hummus I already got so I don’t waste it. Beautiful photos!


Looks like will be a delicious recipe to enjoy the weekend with family. Personal Chefs conduct an in depth assessment of each clients’ food preferences not only from a standpoint of what and how they like to eat.

yuuum definitely going to give this a try!! looks super delicious…


Homemade hummus might be my favorite snack to make. I use avocado, roasted red pepper, edamame….whatever it is I feel like. The hard part was switching from chips to sliced veggies :D

Emisa – try almond or cashew butter?

Going to be giving this recipe a whirl…looks great!


I was making something similar to this a lot last winter… no beans but with roasted butternut squash as a base. It’s so good and easy!

Never thought of adding sweet potatoes to my hummus! Looks delicious.


Looks yummy :) Xx, Tiffany |
