Holly’s Loaded Sweet Potato (Serves 2 people)

You will need:
Potato and Toppings:
two sweet potatoes, washed and pricked
400g tin chickpeas, drained (100g for the topping 300g for the hummus)
Olive oil
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp cumin or cumin seeds
1 medium onion, diced
1 large handful cherry tomatoes, halved
1 small red pepper, diced

Almond Milk Hummus Sauce: *
300g chickpeas
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp tahini
Olive oil
1/2 juice of a lemon
50ml unsweetened almond milk
Freshly torn basil to serve

*you may decide to buy pre-made hummus and just loosen it with a little almond milk rather than making your own.
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C and bake the sweet potatoes until soft, this will vary due to size but should take about an hour. Put 100g of chickpeas into a small oven proof dish and drizzle over a little olive oil and top with the spices. Mix until all the chickpeas are coated before placing in the oven for 30 minutes. Once cooked these can be removed and left to one side until serving. In another oven dish, mix together the onion, tomatoes and red pepper before pouring over a little olive oil. Season with black pepper and place in the oven for 20 minutes. Stir once during cooking.

To make the sauce, place the remaining chickpeas, garlic, paprika, tahini, a good drizzle of oil and the lemon juice into a small food processor and blitz until combined. You may need to add more oil until you achieve the consistency of hummus. Add the almond milk in small amounts, mixing in between each addition until your sauce is runny and pourable.

Cut open your sweet potatoes length ways and place on plates. Pour over the roasted vegetables and chickpeas before adding the sauce. Finally, top with some freshly torn basil and serve.
