Well, it’s now officially Fall. I know technically it started a few weeks back, but up until the start of this week it’s been so unseasonally HOT here in New York. Although I’m sad to see summer go, I’m always pretty excited about the Fall weather. It’s hard to beat a 60-70° day… I just wish I could have that temperature AND it stay light outside past 7pm. Lofty goals, I know.
I actually have a recipe somewhere in the annals of Shared Appetite for a homemade Sweet Potato Hummus, but if we can just be real… since having a child I’m all about cutting corners when entertaining. Gone are the days when I could make everything from scratch and cook at my leisure. Now it’s… okay let’s get her to the babysitter (hi mom), drive back home, and we have 1 hour before guests come over… ready GO.
So when I decided to just try blending a good quality store bought hummus with some roasted sweet potatoes, I was really hoping it’s would work out the way I wanted. Good news, it totally did. It takes totally awesome and WAY better than just regular old hummus. I love the slight little sweetness the sweet potato adds.
If you taste your sweet potato hummus and it tastes a little flat, you can always feel free to alter it with a little lemon juice and/or salt. Depending on what brand store bought hummus you buy, you may need a little help from those two kitchen all stars.
When I first started serving these Vegan Sweet Potato Hummus and Apple Bites, I used crackers. But the other day I realized the crackers in the pantry went stale on me and I had no interest in heading to the grocery store. Enter… yet again for another HUGE save, Flatout flatbread!
I always have a stockpile of Flatout products lying around for this very reason. They have saved breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacking SO many times at my house.
I love cutting up Flatout flatbreads into little chip shapes and baking them off. Not only are they way better for me than those fried tortilla chips, I can also customize the flavors. For these Vegan Sweet Potato Hummus and Apple Bites, I brushed the flatbreads with lemon juice and sprinkled with salt and pepper. I love the little acidic kick the lemon adds to the baked chips!
Make sure to look for Flatout products at your local grocery store in the deli section. To see what stores in your area carry Flatout, check out their product locator! And if you need some recipe inspiration, they have a HUGE recipe center!
I love the balance of flavors in these Vegan Sweet Potato and Apple Bites. The savory hummus with just a hint of sweetness, the sweet and tart honeycrisp apples (PLEASE make sure to use honeycrisp or something similar… don’t go using red delicious or anything like that… bleh), and the bite of shallot. HEAVEN on a chip.
For easy entertaining at parties, I just put out a big tray of the chips, hummus, apple slices, and shallot and let guests build their own. It’s way easier and encourages people to interact!
I’m so excited to share this video with you all. I teamed up with a bunch of other food bloggers that LOVE Flatout to create this awesome Flatout tribute to share the #FlatoutLove!Print
