Vegan sweet potato hummus

  • Author: Pip Payne
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


A deliciously easy & tasty vegan friendly hummus

Syns: 1 per portion


  • 2 tins chickpeas (drained and rinsed.)
  • 2 small sweet potatoes (pricked and microwaved for 7 minutes)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1.5 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups water


  1. Scoop the flesh out of the sweet potatoes and add into a food processor
  2. Add in all the other ingredients and blend until smooth! You can pop in a bit more water if it’s too stiff.
  3. Try to check the salt level- it may need a little more and the right balance makes all the difference!


For a non-vegan version you can use fat-free yoghurt instead of water to give it the creamy consistency
