Sweet Potato Hummus
Makes 4 cups
Sweet potatoes’ orange hue is the beautiful result of a wealth of betacarotene, which helps support eye health and immunity. Chickpeas provide a rich source of soluble fiber and B- vitamins for cardiovascular health. By serving this dip with crisp- tender vegetables such as red peppers and broccoli, you will also get vitamin C, selenium, and sulforaphane, an antioxidant shown to prevent certain types of cancers. Whole-wheat pita bread is another healthful, fiber-rich alternative to crackers.

colander) inside pot, and bring water to a boil. Add potatoes; reduce

2. Transfer potatoes to a food processor. Add chickpeas, lemon juice,
tahini, oil, cumin, and garlic. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute; thin

Top customer reviews
every recipe i have tried from this book has been successful. they were all delicious, satisfying and easy to follow. some of our favorites include the olive oil cake,various breakfast smoothies, salmon recipes and the trout with almonds and parsley is what my husband requested for his birthday.
if you or anyone you know are trying to eat in a way that is healthy and diverse (re: lots of different ways of using the 38 ingredients) then this is an excellent pick.
If you are beginning to learn about healthier foods or if they have been part of your lifestyle for awhile and you are looking for new ideas, this is a great book for you.
There is a large variety of very do-able recipes.
And for fun there is "Double dark chocolate and ginger biscotti" -- a unique recipe which alone may make the book worth having! (I've adjusted the egg amount to 2 whole eggs and instead of 1/2 cup sugar use an equivalent amount of a stevia/ raw sugar product.)
If you are sensitive to print odors from similar books with many photographs be forewarned to air the book a bit before using.
