If you know me on a personal level, you know I live for hummus. Like I’ll put it on just about anything savory.

It’s pure gold, let’s face it.

So I decided to be a little daring and try a twist on the classic mediterranean spread.

What was created is pure, dippable bliss. This sweet potato hummus is easy, creamy, delicious, addicting, and not to mention, perfect for meal prep, snacks, salads, and more!

Have I sold you yet? 😉

The real kicker here is that not only does it come together in a matter of minutes, but this hummus is made without chickpeas! Yep, it’s a beanless hummus!

If you’re not new here, then you know I have a thing for healthy sweet potato recipes that are semi-unusual, so this sweet potato hummus fits the bill! Now, I know some people don’t like labels or freak out if they see the words “paleo,” or “vegan,” but I do want to mention that this is indeed a Paleo sweet potato hummus!

Now for storage (as if this will last you more than a day haha!), I recommend storing in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!

What to dip into this hummus

I don’t know about you, but I don’t just reserve hummus for dipping. I mean, it’s obviously great for dipping, don’t get me wrong.

But this healthy hummus recipe goes way beyond just being a dip. Here are a few suggestions I have for you when enjoying this Paleo hummus, from the classic to the less conventional:

  • Enjoy this sweet potato hummus with sliced carrot sticks, celery sticks, halved cherry tomatoes, and cucumber matchsticks! It makes a great dip for placing on any charcuterie board 😉
  • I don’t know if you know this, but hummus toast is becoming a thing (might be because it’s so much more affordable than avocado haha!), so slather a bit of this on some pieces of toast or a bagel!
  • Add a scoop of this dairy free hummus, mix it with a little water, and use it as a vegan creamy dressing on a salad or buddha bowl!
  • Use a dollop as a delicious and creamy spread on a sandwich or wrap!
  • Pack it in a dip container as a fun and easy nut free snack for your kiddos or yourself!
  • My personal favorite: just take a spoon to the bowl. Trust me, you’ll have zero regrets haha!

The options are really endless for this beanless hummus!
