Hummus makes an unexpected but tasty partner with sweet potatoes for this vegetarian main dish. Sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds and broccoli add flavor and texture.

Ingredients

  • 4 8 - ounces sweet potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup purchased roasted red pepper hummus
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Toasted sesame seed

Directions

  1. Prick sweet potatoes 5 or 6 times with a fork. On a microwave-safe plate, cook potatoes on high power for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender. (Or, place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 425 degrees F. for 45 minutes.)
  2. Cook broccoli with water in a microwave-safe bowl, covered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until just tender; drain.
  3. Slit potatoes lengthwise, cutting halfway through. Scoop flesh into bowl and mash with hummus, lemon juice and sesame oil. Stir in broccoli.
  4. Refill skins and microwave 1 to 2 minutes to heat through. Top with toasted sesame seed.
