Ingredients: 2 medium Sweet Potatoes
1 Medium Onion
Hummus (I prefer to use a roasted garlic hummus)
1/2 14oz can of Chickpeas
1/2 14oz can of Sun Dried Tomatoes
Handful of Baby Spinach
Optional Veggies: Zucchini and Red Pepper
Unsweetened Almond Milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut sweet potatoes in half, lightly oil, and lay face down on baking sheet lined with tin foil. (cutting them in half with cut your cooking time in half).
Toss Chickpeas in olive oil and above seasonings. Add them to your baking tray. Cook Chick Pea's and Sweet Potatoes for 25- 30's minutes, or until sweet potato is cooked all the way through. Chickpeas will be crunchy.
While sweet potatoes are baking, coat a large pan with oil of choice and sauté onions over medium heat. Cook for about 3 minutes, until they begin to soften. Add in zucchini and red pepper (if using) and cook for another 5-7 minutes. Season with the above spices. In the last minute of cooking your veggies, add in tomatoes and spinach.
Make your sauce- combine hummus in a bowl with lemon juice, seasonings, and slowly mix in almond milk until liquid. Set aside.
Take potatoes out of the oven, top with your veggies and drizzle with hummus sauce. Enjoy!
