Prep: 10 min. •  Cook: 5-10 min. •  Makes: 2 cups


  • 1 Biggin's® sweet potato, scrubbed, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes
  • 1 can (15 oz.) chick peas, drained and rinsed
  • Juice from one lemon (about ¼ c.)
  • ¼ c. tahini
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 3-4 tbsp. water
  • Veggies or pita for dipping


Steam, boil or cook sweet potatoes with a bit of water in the microwave until tender (steaming generally takes about 10 minutes, boiling takes about 8 minutes and microwaving with water takes about 5 minutes). Next, drain the sweet potatoes and run cold water over them. Transfer sweet potatoes to a food processor or blender. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the water. Process for about one minute. Add water as needed and process another 2 minutes, until smooth. Keeps in refrigerator for up to a week. Serve with veggies or pita.
