GREEN HUMMUS

GREEN HUMMUS - Traditional Hummus with Fresh Coriander & Purple Oven Baked Fries

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 few. The most common are orange sweet potatoes, but also purple yams, that 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 gave up searching for the purple yams with purple flesh and I finally find them. And what , better place to find them than 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 a oven baked fries for change. I also made green hummus, as you can see and what a heavenly combination that was! Delicious, healthy and easy is the key for this recipe, perfect for parties, lunch or snack. You can even take it to go. The Green Hummus 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.
