The recipe you never knew you needed. If you are a fan of delicious dips, this recipe is a must try. It is great for any event as a beautiful serving dish or to store in your fridge for quick, on-the-go pre-made snacks. Either way, this dip deserves a place in your fridge.
To make the dip, start by peeling 2 small sweet potatoes (or 1 large) and dicing into small squares. Steam the sweet potatoes until tender. Add into a food processor: steamed sweet potatoes, 1/4 cup tahini, the juice of 2 lemons, 3 cloves of garlic, 3 Tbsp olive oil, 1 can chick peas (rinsed and drained), 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Blend all ingredients until well combined. Depending on your preferred consistency and taste, play around with ingredient amounts. If you like thick, chunky dips go lighter on the lemon juice and olive oil. If you like really smooth and creamy dips, add slightly more olive oil and a little less tahini. I’m a fan of bold flavor so I added extra lemon juice, salt, and paprika.
This dip is great served with veggies, crackers, or even as a sandwich spread. I hope you enjoy this recipe that doubles as a sneaky way to get another serving of vegetables into your day. It’s so good you won’t even know how good it is for you!
