Sweet Potato Dip with Kale Pesto


Sweet Potato Dip with Kale Pesto

We slathered this on everything and ate the pesto in gobs, on bread. If you have extra, freeze it, or toss it with some pasta and extra lemon!

Serves 4

1 large sweet potato, roasted

1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons tahini

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon turmeric

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

4-5 tablespoons water, as needed

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper


In a food processor, purée sweet potato, chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and turmeric. Add the oil slowly, scraping down the sides until the hummus is smooth; add salt and pepper. Add water, if necessary, to thin the hummus to the desired consistency. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
