Yam hummus

Hey Vegan friends and yam lovers!  You are going to love this one!

I made it mostly by accident because I didn’t have the regular hummus ingredients and had to improvise a little!   What a great accident it was!

Here’s what happened.

Peel, cube and boil up some nice yams.  Or if you happen to have some left over roasted yams, they would be great too!

Boiled yams

Then add to the food processor:

  • 2 cloves fresh garlic 

Whiz them up first and alone to make sure they are good and chopped to avoid big mouthfuls of raw garlic!

Then add:

  • the boiled or roasted yams
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smokie paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Now here is where it gets crazy!  I didn’t have any tahini, the tradition binder of hummus, so I used peanut butter!!   My favorite anyway!!

  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter ( preferably the “just peanuts” kind)
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

And I didn’t actually add it to this batch but if you wanted to add a little shot of maple syrup to this to sweeten it up a bit, that would be fine.

Whiz these all up until nice and smooth.  Put into your favorite bowl and garnish if you like, or just jump on in!

Yam hummus

Yummy and healthy too!!
