Sweet Potato Hummus

As requested, here is the recipe for Sweet Potato Hummus.

Sweet Potato Hummus

3 sweet potatoes
1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained (reserve liquid) and rinsed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
sea salt to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Poke holes all over sweet potatoes with a fork

Roast sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until soft, about 45 minutes; let cool.  Cut sweet potatoes in half lengthwise

Combine garbanzo beans and olive oil in a blender and pulse several times to mash.  Scoop flesh out peels and add to the blender; pulse to combine.

Add tahini, lemon juice, lemon zest, cumin, coriander, white pepper, and sea salt to mixture; blend until smooth, adding reserved garbanzo bean liquid as needed to make a smooth, creamy hummus.  (We ended up adding some of the garbanzo bean liquid).
