Spicy Sweet Potato Hummus


* 1 large sweet potato
* 1 15-oz can garbanzo beans
* 3 Tbsp. tahini
* juice of 1 lemon
* 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 tsp white pepper
* 1 tsp cayenne pepper
* ¾ tsp cumin
* 1 tsp. Pimenton Dulce paprika
* 3-4 Tbsp. olive oil
* 2-3 Tbsp. water
* salt to taste
* toasted pine nuts as a garnish

Peel and cut into pieces and boil the sweet potato. Boil the garbanzo beans until the skins come off. Remove the skins, drain, and combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth adding small amounts of oil and water until desired consistency is achieved (this recipe usually requires more liquid, as the potato will absorb a lot of liquid.) Add salt to taste and more lemon, if needed. Enjoy with pita chips!
