Sweet Potato Hummus Bowl

This savory dip is super smooth thanks to the addition of sweet potato, and we topped it off with crispy leeks and toasty pine nuts. Beet and sweet potato chips stand in for pita as crispy dippers.

Optional toppings: toasted pine nuts, cilantro, crispy leeks

Suggested dippers: vegetables chips (such as sweet potato, beet or taro)

*TIP: To prepare mashed sweet potato, scrub 2 large skin-on sweet potatoes and prick several times with a fork. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in 400°F oven until a sharp knife slides easily into center, 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool enough to handle, then cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh. Mash flesh with a fork until smooth.
