Sweet potatoes' orange glow gives away their beta-carotene content. By serving this dip with whole-wheat pita and raw vegetables such as red peppers and broccoli, you also get selenium, vitamin C, and sulforaphane.

    If these "sweet potatoes" are orange, doesn't that mean that they are actually calling for yams in this recipe? Or does the seasoning create the orange hue?

    Great recipe. I microwaved the sweet fine. I added more garlic. I added splenda brand brown sugar (about 1/4 cup) and some cinnamon. Love love love.

    Wow, super disappointing. Very little hummus flavor. I doubled the garlic and added more cumin & salt... nothing. Bummer.
