Roasted Sweet Potato Dip

Antonia MagorComment

This sweet potato dip is a great snack or served as a side to a meal. It's definitely worth the little bit of extra effort compared to a classic hummus to roast the sweet potatoes and then mash with the chickpeas but it's really worth it to make up a big batch and it's one of my most popular with my friends.
