Spicy Sweet Potato 
Hummus  - serves 10

Ingredients

1 1/2 large capsicum, red 
1 medium sweet potato 
1/4 cup tahini
(see recipe in Rock Your Foods or use your own)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 
juice of 1/2 lemon 
pepper to taste 
 

Method

Preheat oven to 220 C.

Peel the sweet potato and cut it into small cubes

Place them into a bowl a flavor with paprika, chilli powder, and pepper to your liking.

Place the sweet potato on a baking tray with a piece of baking paper on it.  Spread out evenly and roast until soft, approx. 30 minutes.  Once cooked, let the potato cool for at least 10 minutes.   

On a second baking paper lined tray, place your red capsicum, cut in half size pieces.

Roast these, turning occasionally, until the skin starts to char and blister (you will need to watch them). 

Once they do this, remove them from the oven and place them into a plastic bag or container, that can be well sealed.  Leave for 10 minutes, this will help to lift the skin to make it easier to remove. 

After 10 minutes, peel the skin off and throw away

Once the sweet potato and red capsicum are cooled and ready to use, add them to a food processor or strong blender along with the tahini, oil, lemon juice and additional seasonings 

Serve with veggie sticks. Store leftovers in fridge for up to four days. Enjoy!
