Sooooooooo since it’s almost September (which means it’s even closer to the best month ever, October! Eeek!) that means I can get away with posting a fall-esque recipe.

Sweet potatoes + hummus= Summer is fading into Fall

As you know from my Boiled Peanut Hummus & Black Eyed Pea Hummus, I lurve to vamp up the sensible snack using not so conventional ingredients.

Sweet potatoes completely fit the bill.

Add in some sensual spices like garam masala, cumin, and cinnamon, and you’ve got yourself an unbelievably tasty, ethnically enriching, crowd pleasing dish that will be requested by the host of every party you attend…no matter the season.

Sweet potatoes have always been one of my favorite foods, but they have always been served to me in the same old boring (yet scrumptious) ways…sweet potato casserole with chopped pecans, sweet potato pie, and sweet potato casserole with toasted marshmallows.

Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

As you saw with my Sweet Potato Gnocchi SautĂ©, I’ve been trying to utilize the orange veggie in a variety of ways, so when I first heard of using sweet potatoes in a hummus I was completely blown away.

I was even more flabbergasted by how good this junk is.

Sweet yet savory while smoky and unique, this hummus has become my absolute go to healthy snack and it is such a cinch to make!

Make it even easier by popping the potato in your microzapper instead of roasting it in the oven.

Trust me, once you try this and then realize it has only 51 calories and 0 grams of fat per serving, you will continually go back for more…and more…and more!

Note: Here is the recipe for my Benne-hini.

Getting to know you…

Do you prefer your casserole with pecans or marshmallows?

What’s your favorite season?

    I just like my sweet potatoes plain (with a bit of cinnamon). I’m allergic to pecans, and marshmallows are really just for s’mores in my book.

    Am I ready for fall? NO!!! I’m an Arizona girl (but born in California), so I pretty much live for sunshine. Which we have all year in my native land, but not as much in the midwest. I loved summer in AZ, and even more now that I live in the Lou. Stupid frickin’ fall…
