Bean Free Sweet Potato Hummus




The idea of a bean free hummus is a little daunting.. It's a very weird concept to take a traditional recipe and change it completely.

Hummus is popular all over the world and traditionally eaten with pita bread. The original recipe is chickpeas, tahini (sesame paste), garlic, lemon, and olive oil. Super simple right?!

Beans these days I'm oooookaaaaay with. I can eat them in a small amount and I try to take a digestive enzyme with alpha-galactosidase in it to help my body out but typically I try to avoid them. I'm far from a bean queen.

This recipe is super simple and I recommend cooking your own sweet potato, but if you're in a rush you can always buy canned pureed sweet potato. Just try to make sure it's in a BPA free can.




Bean Free Sweet Potato Hummus

Ingredients

1 C mashed sweet potato
2 heaping tbsp tahini
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp sriracha (optional, but highly recommended!)
1 tbsp olive oil
generous pinch of mineral salt and pepper
cold water

Directions

In a food processor or high speed blender, mix together sweet potato, garlic, lime juice and cumin.

Add sriracha and olive oil and blend. Slowly add water to make it a smoother consistency, starting at about 1 tbsp and adding until it's how you want it. Feel free to add more sriracha to suit your taste buds!

Will keep fresh in the fridge for up to a week.
