This sweet potato hummus has a brilliant orange hue that seems to whisper "dip something in me."

Food writer and recipe developer Dawn Yanagihara figured out something awesome: Those brightly colored vegetables you’re supposed to be eating regularly make beautiful, vibrant-hued dips and spreads. Better still: Those dips and spreads are perfect for blending up the nuts, seeds and other superfoods you’re supposed to be eating regularly, too. The combination of silky mashed sweet potatoes and savory chickpeas makes for a perfectly balanced dip that will brighten up vegetable crudité or chips of any kind. 

This dip is smooth, earthy, sweet, nutty and slightly smoky. Serve with crackers, crudités, pita bread or pita chips. It can be refrigerated without garnish for up to five days; bring to room temperature, stir to recombine and garnish before serving.
