Purple Sweet Potato Hummus

By Olivia Edgar, HCTP July 2017

Making your own hummus gives you complete control of the ingredients (no canola or vegetable oils here!). Using sweet potato gives it an additional sweet flavor, and you can’t beat the fresh creamy texture.


  • 2 cans chickpeas, rinsed and peeled
  • 2 medium purple sweet potatoes, roasted (about a cup of the insides scooped out)
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Himalayan salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme to taste


  1. Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.
  2. Eat with healthy crackers, veggies, or on pretty much anything!

She finally found the balance she was looking for through food and holistic practices.
