The air definitely has more of a chill in it. The days are shorter, and the leaves have started to fall.
There are many things to love about the coming autumn. The countless images of pumpkin recipes that pop up on Pinterest, hot chocolate becoming a food group, hot tea that warms the soul, warm fuzzy blankets, and this very autumnal looking sweet potato hummus.
You know those silly questions when people ask you what you would bring with you to a deserted island, food wise? I never get it. How could I possibly limit my food choices? What tools am I given? If I bring an avocado, do I have lime to make guacamole? What if I want tahini? Or chocolate? My food-mood changes daily, so it is unrealistic to expect me to choose.
I’d probably end up bringing a sweet potato, as long as I could cook it. Maybe even if I couldn’t I’d still bring it and have it as my friend. I do love a good sweet potato, and even Tom Hanks in Cast Away had Wilson.
I would also bring hummus. I have an ongoing and forever-lasting love story with hummus – as can be seen here and here – so it was only natural that the two met and became one very delicious sweet potato hummus.
