Sweet potato cinnamon hummus with homemade cinnamon sugar flatbreads! Perfect as a dip or as a sandwich spread!
Every flavor, every way. I swear, if I wasn’t worried about nutrient deficiencies, I would eat hummus for every.single.meal. Lately, we have been slathering Trader Joe’s tomato-basil and roasted red pepper hummus on just about everything. It’s totally normal to go through three tubs of hummus a week, right?
Last weekend, I was craving a hearty snack to get me through an afternoon of rotating my closet for the cooler weather. I know that we tend to associate spring with cleaning and purging, but I love to do it right before the craziness of the holidays. I find that when I declutter my home, I am much more open to spending weekends with friends decorating cookies, DIYing gifts, and participating in as many tacky-light tours as I can convince BL to join.
And, cleaning out clothes definitely deserves a snack like this. What should be an hour-long project, takes me almost an entire afternoon. Trying on countless outfit combinations, making piles for various charities, and reminiscing on most items as I store them away for another year.
Sweet potato hummus to the rescue! This time of year I tend to have an excess of cooked sweet potatoes lying around the home. Whether I am making my mac and cheese, stuffed sweet potatoes or sweet potato soup, I like cooking a ton of them on the weekend to use up throughout the week.
Naturally, one of these potatoes was destined to end up in hummus. This might be my favorite hummus flavor to date. It’s the perfect slightly-sweet, smoky dip that pairs perfectly with homemade cinnamon flatbreads. Pillowy soft, these flatbreads were the vehicle for heaping bit after bite of hummus into my mouth.
Because it’s fall, you probably have little bits of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or pumpkin lying around. Put ’em in this hummus! Any orange vegetable will work. A little cumin, a little cayenne, a little paprika- now we’re talking!
