When the weather warms up, one of my favorite things to do is dine al fresco with friends. Setting out Sabra hummus with veggies and crackers for dipping is always a hit, but it’s fun to switch it up sometimes too! Enter: these gluten free and vegetarian sweet potato rounds topped with savory hummus, tomatoes, basil, and feta.

National Hummus Day is on Saturday, and these would be the perfect way to celebrate – just sayin’!

Sabra offers a ton of different hummus flavors (I tried pretty much all of them at their headquarters in Richmond – I know, rough life), but their roasted garlic hummus works beautifully with all the Mediterranean flavors going on in these bites. Not a huge garlic fan? No worries – the less garlicky classic hummus will also do the trick. :)

These Mediterranean Sweet Potato and Hummus Bites make a perfect flavorful, super easy appetizer for summer entertaining using just 6 ingredients!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch rounds (my sweet potatoes were about 6" long and cut into ~10 slices each)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Sabra Roasted Garlic Hummus
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • salt and pepper, as needed

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Toss the sweet potato slices with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet and roast for about 20-25 minutes, until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, toss together the tomatoes, feta, basil, remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl.
  4. Spread a small spoonful of hummus (~1 teaspoon or so) onto each sweet potato round, then top with about a tablespoon of the tomato mixture and serve!

    I’ve been making “sweet potato nachos” with hummus for my baby recently – he is a little obsessed with roasted sweet potatoes, a man after my own heart :) This grown up version looks delicious!

    Mmm roasted garlic hummus is the best! I really need to get more sweet potatoes in my diet since they are so good for us and this looks like a pretty tasty recipe for it!

    i love how simple these are to make but with super flavorful ingredients!!! sometimes for dinner after a long day i’ll just roast a sweet potato and mix it up with some random things in the fridge, but these sound so much better than that and just as easy :)

    Absolutely delicious! The sweetness of the sweet potatoes goes so well with the saltiness of the hummus and basil.
