The addition of roasted sweet potatoes gives the hummus a subtly sweet flavor and a rich savory taste! I like to add smoked paprika to make the flavor profile of this hummus even more complex!

If you’re looking for an easy hummus recipe, this is it! Making sweet potato hummus is easy and super quick to make. The longest part is roasting the sweet potatoes. You can always roast the sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you are ready to make the hummus. 


You only need a food processor or blender to make this creamy sweet potato hummus!

The key to making the best Homemade Sweet Potato Hummus is two-part:

Blend the ingredients in multiple steps to get the perfect creamy hummus. 

  • I blend the garlic, lemon, and salt first. This helps to reduce level out the potency of the garlic so that it does not overpower the hummus. 
  • Then, I blend the tahini until it becomes smooth and creamy.
  • Then, you’ll add the chickpeas, sweet potatoes, and seasonings. You’ll slowly pour in the olive oil and allow the food processor to do its thing!

Add ice-cold water at the very end (or an ice cube) to make the hummus even smoother!

How to store your Sweet Potato Hummus
