This recipe makes approximately 3 cups.


1 1/4 cups mashed yam/sweet potato (1 lb/454g yam/sweet potato; I used 2 small)
2-3 cloves garlic (roasted garlic is even better, I used previously frozen garlic cloves as its not as strong as raw garlic)
1 15 oz. can sodium free chickpeas/garbanzos, drained (reserve some liquid and set aside)
2-3 tbsp chickpea liquid (or as needed to cream hummus)
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Herbamare or salt (or to taste)
Fresh ground pepper to taste
