Equipment

  • Food Processor

  • Blend

Ingredients

  • 1 can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained)

  • 1 cup of sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)

  • 3 tbsp tahini (more if necessary)

  • 2-3 cloves garlic

  • Juice of 1 lime or 1/2 lemon (add extra if necessary)

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • Warm water

  • Salt

Instructions

1

The process

In a food processor, add the chickpeas and sweet potatoes, garlic, and a bit of warm water. Blend until smooth.
2
Now add the tahini and the lemon/lime juice, a pinch of salt and a pinch of cumin- blend until smooth. If it needs thinning, add a bit more water (if it's not blending easily).

Taste

Does it need more tahini? More acidity? More salt? Taste and adjust accordingly.
4
Serve and drizzle some olive oil on top. If you leave it in the fridge overnight, it will taste better the next day!
