A recipe for Sweet Potato Hummus with Cumin Flatbread Chips. Cumin flatbread chip recipe, pairs great with Sweet Potato Hummus. After taking the leap and getting my own studio this year, I am slowly organizing it so it can be both kinda pretty and functional. I am still working on the dish organization part, and moving stuff around, getting stuff built. Its actually kind of a pain, but I still love it. I think in a couple of months we might do a little behind the scenes post so you can see where we work most of the time, the excessive plate buying problem I have, and maybe you can meet some of the cute cats that run around the hallways of the lofts where my studio is at. I think that would be fun. I wish I could also see all the workplaces where you all spend your time. I am always so curious, where you all read our blog from, and what it looks like around you. If you want to post some pictures of your neat workspace on our facebook, you should, because I think that would be fun. Then it will be like we are trading pictures. Thats kinda cute. In other news, Spoon Fork Bacon has its own twitter. You should use that if you don’t want to read tweets from me about how I eat entire sleeves of saltines for dinner. In other other news, this recipe is pretty awesome. Making your own chips for your own hummus is really fun too. Think of all the way you can cut that bread to make fun shapes to dip into your hummus with. Crazy.

    What a fabulous idea to use sweet potato! I adore their sweet flavour which I’m sure is really enhanced by the spices you’ve used in the recipe…I am looking forward to making this!

    I have to admit, every time I’ve tried to make hummus, it does NOT turn out well — it’s always bland and way to dry. Is there some secret? Even when I add add extra herbs or olive oil, it just doesn’t taste good. Any secrets?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Hi Caroline! That’s a bummer, but I know what you’re talking about. What I’ve started to do is use a little bit of the bean liquid either from the can, or the cooking liquid (if you’re using dry beans) to adjust my consistency. Try avoid adding oil to your hummus. I usually only add a touch to the mix and then top it off with oil…adding to much might leave you with a weird paste (totally happened to me…a number of times). You can also try adding lemon juice, which should help with the texture as well as allow other flavors to come through more. Hope this was helpful! Good luck!!

    Bonjour !
    I tried this yesterday evening, after buying some flat breads at my local Lebanese spot. Awesome. The idea to mix garbanzos and sweet potato is great ! I added some fresh cilantro leaves on the top with a handful of unmixed garbanzos. The result is great! Luv your site a lot!

    Yum! What a great idea. Making hummus was already on my To Do List for this week, and I just happen to have some sweet potatoes. . . Thanks for the delicious inspiration. :)

  33. Sarah (Designer Dishes) Not Specified Not Specified

    I love the idea of adding a sweet hint to houmous! I wonder if this would work with roasted sweet potato too.

  34. katie Not Specified Not Specified

  35. Sophie @ dinnersforwinners Not Specified Not Specified

    I made this last night! Sooo tasty! You gals are so smart. I’ve been making hummus forever and even though everyone likes it, I got really bored with the same-old. The color of this is amazing and the flavors are so interesting… kind of spicy, but garlicky and sweet…. it’s a whole new dish :) Thanks! I love your blog!

    I made this yesterday. Neither my husband nor I have been fond of sweet potatoes our entire lives. We are trying them again and finding they are better than we last thought.
    That said, this hummus was good. I have other recipes I think I like better, but this is a bit different and has good flavor. I’ll probably make it again.
