- 1 large sweet potato
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
- 3 T Tahini
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 3 T olive oil
- 1 t salt
- 1/2 t cayenne pepper
- 1/2 2 paprika powder
- 1/2 t cumin
- about 1 cup (2 1/2 dl) water

Scrub and dry the potato and prick it with a knife. Put it, together with the garlic cloves, on a parchment paper covered baking tray and bake for 45 minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients to a food processor while the potato and garlic are cooling. Pulse the mixture a couple of times and add the vegetables when they have cooled down. Puree until smooth and add the water gradually until you have the desired consistency.
