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.
1. Fill a large pot with 2 inches of water; set a steamer basket (or
colander) inside pot, and bring water to a boil. Add potatoes; reduce
heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, 10 to 12
2. Transfer potatoes to a food processor. Add chickpeas, lemon juice,
tahini, oil, cumin, and garlic. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute; thin
with up to 2 tablespoons of water if necessary. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and
season with pepper. Let cool; refrigerate for up to 1 week in an airtight
container. Garnish with paprika before serving.
1 pound sweet potatoes (about 2), peeled and cut into 1- inch pieces
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons)
¼ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
½ teaspoon hot or smoked paprika, for garnish

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I wanted May 4 2011
By Anna
I am stoked I purchased this cookbook. I have already made about 12 things from it, all of them easy and tasty, and adaptable if you get inspired or have limited access to some of the ingredients. I would highly recommend this to anyone - cooking enthusiasts, beginners or chefs, health conscious folks to those who just want a kick start. There is something in here for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cookbook ever Nov. 28 2011
By Kijiji
I'm not into Martha Stewart but I love this cookbook. Probably the best cookbook I own. The recipes are achievable and not too daunting, but remain attractive, delicious and healthy. Imagine Swedish style minimalism directed towards constructing food.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good ideas March 12 2012
By Mac82
The book has some good information and is very healthy. Unfortunately some of the recipes are quite bland. A bit more liberal seasoning could really help things out. I found the urge to adjust a few recipes for this reason.
