2 Sweet Potatoes

1 Tin of Chickpeas (drained)

3 Cloves Garlic (minced or crushed)

Juice of 1 Lemon

3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Cayenne Pepper (optional to add heat)




  1. First things first, make sure you preheat your oven to 205°C.
  2. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and bake in oven for about 40 minutes till tender. Remembering to poke with a fork every so often. Allow to cool.
  3. Peel the potatoes and puree the flesh along with chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, and paprika in a food processor till silky smooth. Turn the heat up with a pinch of cayenne, if desired.
  4. Spoon the dip into a bowl and serve with your choice of sides. At Adrift we've found that pita chips, carrots and the dip make a delicious pairing.
