Sweet Potato Chipotle Hummus

Originally published March 1, 2017 A recipe for a Sweet Potato Chipotle Hummus recently piqued my interest. Armed with a leftover sweet potato to use up from dinner last night, I gave it a try. The recipe is supposed to taste like classic hummus with a sweet and spicy flare. Instead, of straight garbanzo beans and sesame, this recipe calls to replace half the usual beans with one baked sweet potato. The substitution adds a creamy sweetness that was great on chips and cucumbers slices. The recipe was easily accomplished in the Vitamix, but needed more than the suggested 2 tablespoons of olive oil to help it along. I added a sprinkling of salt and pepper as well as a good amount of cayenne for both taste and show. If you love hummus, you’ll love this creative rendition. Here’s the recipe with my adjustments. Sweet Potato Chipotle Hummus Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes Servings: 8…

Homemade Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

I whipped up another hummus recipe this weekend — roasted red pepper hummus. This one is probably my favorite yet. The roasted red peppers and cayenne pepper give this dip a smooth and creamy texture with a delicious sweet heat. It’s bursting with fresh flavors. If you’ve only ever had store-bought hummus, you’re missing out. It’s so simple to make and easily customizable, you can have complete control over snack time no matter your diet. I roasted my own red peppers because it only takes about 20 minutes and keeps the salt content down. But you can use jarred red peppers from the grocery store if you’re in a hurry. ROASTED RED PEPPER HUMMUS Ingredients 2 medium red bell peppers (about one 10 oz. jar) 1 can of chickpeas (about 15 oz.) 1 lemon, halved 1/4 cup tahini 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tbsp olive oil 1/4 cup water 1 tsp salt 1/4 cayenne pepper Directions Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Artichoke dip stuffed bread appetizer perfect for fall football games

The part I enjoy most about fall football season is the food — no shocker there. Most specifically, the appetizers — we can get burgers anytime. With the NFL regular season kicking off, I thought I’d share this unusual take on the classic artichoke dip and pitas. It’s fun and easy to eat, and more importantly, incredibly delicious. When you bring this to the tailgate or table, it’s sure to win big. I first saw this recipe at a tailgate. A crafty friend of mine made and stuffed the loaves ahead of time, wrapped them in foil, and popped them on the grill alongside the burgers and dogs. Try is both ways and see which you prefer. They’ll never be leftovers — guaranteed. Artichoke DIP stuffed bread Serves 4-5 Ingredients 1 fresh french loaf 8 oz. can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped 6 oz. package of cream cheese 1/2 cup mozzarella 1/2 cup soup cream…

Creamy Roasted Beet Hummus: Your new favorite snack

Hummus has taken hold over most of America. Just a few years ago, most people had never heard of the traditional Mediterranean dip. Today, we can’t get enough of this creamy snack spread made from chickpeas, sesame seed paste and seasonings. Millennials, in particular, tend to gravitate toward new and unusual flavors. A new generation paired with a strong commitment to healthier dietary choices paved the way for the unusual light brown spread that packed a nutritional punch. Americans have been so receptive of hummus, in fact, that sales have started to creep towards those of other popular dips like salsa and guacamole. According to the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council, hummus sales in grocery stores now top $725 million annually — up from $5 just 20 years ago. It is estimated that one in four homes now regularly stock hummus in the fridge. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, have been cultivated in Middle…
