Green Hummus is a delicious blend of traditional hummus with cilantro, served with purple oven baked fries.

If you read my BAKED PURPLE YAMS blog, you may know about my search for purple flesh yams. The variety of yams is quite wide, but most supermarkets have available only a few. The most common are orange sweet potatoes, but also purple yams, which I thought were purple inside as well. Unfortunately, they were white, even though delicious and I was very happy with the results.

Nevertheless, I did not give up searching for the purple yams with purple flesh and I finally found them. And what, better place to find them than an Asian supermarket?! Honestly, I love shopping in those stores, because they have so many exotic fruits and veggies, spices, herbs, and all sorts of products. I could go way over my budget if I don’t control myself.

Anyway, I got my desired purple yams and I decided to make oven-baked fries for change. I also made green hummus, as you can see, and what a heavenly combination that was! Delicio This recipe is perfect for parties, you can even take it to go for lunch or snacks. It goes well with tortilla chips or pita also. Oh and if you can’t find purple yams, regular sweet potatoes will do just fine too.

I hope you try this flavorful recipe and let me know what you think. I am also curious about your experience with yams and how many different types have you tried so far. I look forward to hearing from you, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful week!
