Current obsession – New Girl. It’s not really a new obsession as much as it is an old obsession that was forgotten about and now reborn. I used to watch this show all. the. time. but then I just stopped watching. Now I’m making my husband watch a million episodes each night while I dream of living in a loft with crazy roommates. I should also note that Art nicely rewatched Parks & Recreation for the 29589500385 time with me so he demanded a new show to watch at night.

I guess he can only stand my crazy rewatching of the same shows over and over again for a few times before he makes his demands.

Even though he refused to watch Parks & Rec (also, 30 Rock and The Office) again the one thing he never turns down is anything made with hummus. He doesn’t usually just bust out the container of hummus and dig in BUT he LOVES when I make tasty little appetizers. Especially bite-size appetizers like these pesto hummus sweet potato bites.

AND since National Hummus Day is May 13th (this Saturday!) it only seemed appropriate to share these bites with all of you! You’ll want the perfect Sabra hummus snacking dish to celebrate.

Then you top with the hummus of your choice (the hubs LOVES the supremely spicy) and drizzle with homemade spinach pesto and feta cheese. It’s spicy, earthy and delicious all in one bite.

Seriously, he went nutso over these babies!

Plus they were the perfect before dinner snack. You know, that little unofficial meal before the meal. We all do it. It’s totally fine.

Pesto Hummus Sweet Potato Bites

These pesto hummus sweet potato bites are the perfect bite size appetizer. Sumac roasted sweet potato rounds topped with spicy hummus, drizzled with spinach pesto and sprinkled with crumbled feta - how delicious is that!

Yield: 20-25 bites

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

For sweet potatoes: 

  • 3-4 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sumac
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

For spinach pesto: 

  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

For topping: 

  • Sabra hummus (any flavor - I used Supremely Spicy)
  • Crumbled feta cheese
  • Crushed red pepper
  • Sumac

Directions:

For sweet potatoes:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner, set aside.

Scrub your sweet potatoes so the skin is clean. Slice your potatoes 1/2 inch thick until you have as many rounds as you want. Make sure to buy uniform sized sweet potatoes so the round will end up being uniformed in size. I saved smaller pieces for my dinner so there was no waste. I ended up getting about 23 rounds from 4 smaller sized sweet potatoes.

Add the rounds to your prepared baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, kosher salt, sumac and black pepper. Toss to evenly coat, lay flat, add to the oven, cook for 10 minutes, flip rounds and cook for other 10 minutes or until soft and lightly brown.

For pesto:
Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth. Add more water until you reach the desired consistency.

For assembly:
Top each round with about 1 tablespoon hummus, a drizzle of spinach pesto, a crumble of feta cheese and a sprinkling of crushed red pepper and sumac.

    I LOVELOVELOVE Blue Apron on those days when I am so over cooking, and don’t want to make dinner. I haven’t tried this pork, but it sounds amazing! Pinned!

    Love the idea of the salsa. Blue Apron is a fabulous idea especially for people who don’t know what or how to cook. It would take out so much of the stress of “What’s for dinner?”

    I would use all caps too, because I have screamed that in my head too many times. My girlfriend had been doing Blue Apron over the last few months and she can not say enough good things about it. The quality of food the instructions {she is not a cook} are easy to follow and the finish product is always delicious, and she always feels proud of the dinner she puts on the table for her family. Such a great way to get everyone cooking well balanced meals at home, even those that don’t like to cook.

    I LOVE poblano peppers, and charred poblanos are even better. I can only imagine how fabulous that salsa is with the apple too! YUM. Cannot wait to make this!

    I wonder if they’re in Canada? I dig the idea of a service to help people with dinner. So many folks panic and just don’t know what to make. I say heck yes to anything that makes that process easier and more fun for everyone. Cooking should be fun and getting some help is always a good thing. Plus, just look at this meal. Oh em gee, this is stunning. I almost fell off the couch when I read “charred poblano apple salsa”, that’s amazing and I can’t wait to try this. You did good, girl. I want to lick my screen. But I won’t. Because, um, no.

    We had a Blue Apron subscription for a while last year – it really does make weeknight cooking so much easier. I was always really impressed with their recipes.
