Hummus is the great unifier. Whatever type of evening you have planned – from a crowded party (be safe, please!) to just you and Netflix – hummus and dippers is always the right answer. But what if you want to make your dip just a bit fancier? We suggest this sweet potato hummus. To make things easy, we start with store-bought traditional hummus – but you could certainly make your own – and then blitz it up with roasted sweet potato to create an exciting orange purée. For the ultimate eye-appeal, top with toasted pine nuts and serve with colorful veggie chips.

*TIP: To prepare the sweet potato, scrub 2 large skin-on sweet potatoes and prick several times with a fork. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in 400°F oven until a sharp knife slides easily into center, 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool enough to handle, then cut in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh. Mash flesh with a fork until smooth.
