I am always trying to re-invent food to feed my kids! Hummus is a favorite for everyone in the house, but can get quite boring when made the same way over and over. I created my sweet potato hummus one day when I didn’t have enough beans to make a full batch of regular hummus. It quickly became a family favorite and it helps use up the leftover sweet potatoes!
