Spicy Sweet Potato Dip

Spicy Sweet Potato Dip

serves about 6-8


1 large sweet potato – about 425g

1 large clove garlic, crushed

3 tbsp tahini

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp maple syrup

1  1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground ginger



  1. Firstly, prick the skin of the sweet potato using a knife. Then, place the potato onto a baking tray and move it into the oven to bake for 1 hour, until soft.

  2. When the potato has cooked, remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool (so it doesn’t burn your hands). While the potato cools, add the garlic, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, cumin, chilli, cinnamon, paprika, salt and ginger into your food processor.

  3. Then, when the potato has cooled down, remove and discard the peel. Add the potato into your food processor with all of the other ingredients, and blend everything until completely smooth. When this is done, transfer the dip into a bowl and top it with some extra oil, chilli and other seasonings to finish.
