Snowed In: Part 2

Since Part 1 of Snowed In we have done this:




And made sweet potato hummus.

This hummus is supposed to be for tonight’s weekly potluck dinner, but it seems as though our parking lot is still not plowed. That should be fun at 7 am tomorrow.

Sweet potato hummus recipe from Whole Living

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 can (19.5 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 garlic clove, chopped
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Whole-wheat pita and vegetables (red pepper, cauliflower, carrots)

Set a steamer basket in a large pot. Fill with enough water to come just below basket; bring to a boil. Add potatoes; reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a food processor.
Combine chickpeas, lemon juice, tahini, oil, cumin, and garlic in the food processor. Puree, about 1 minute; thin with water if necessary. Season with salt and pepper and let cool; refrigerate, in an airtight container, up to 1 week. Serve with pita and vegetables.

    Sounds delicious, I’m sad we couldn’t do potluck this week. I just got word we’re cancelled tomorrow too. Apparently the Salem plows can’t keep up!
