I went to Dr Esselstyn's class Friday and this is one of the dishes they served us. It's delicious!
Sweet Potato Hummus--
From Dr Caldwell and Ann Esselstyn
15 oz of baked sweet potatoes, (about 2 large)
1 4oz jar of Roasted Red Peppers (water packed, drained, any burnt skin removed)
3 Tablespoons of lemon juice (about what you get from 1 lemon)
1 clove Fresh Garlic (diced fine)
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon chopped Fresh Parsley
Process everything in a food processor or blender until smooth, transfer to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour.
100% whole wheat pita bread
Pre heat oven to 350
Cut bread in half separate and then stack and cut into wedges.
Bake for 10 to 20 minutes- Check after 10 minutes, the thinner slices will get crisp sooner. All the peta bread I used seemed to be thicker on one side than the other.
