Making these vegan loaded sweet potatoes couldn’t be easier!

How To Make the Roasted Chickpeas and Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes in half, rub with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on the sheet pan.
  3. Toss the chickpeas with olive oil, cumin, paprika, cinnamon, salt and pepper. I like to do this right on the sheet pan to avoid dirtying another dish.
  4. Roast for 25-35 minutes, depending on how large your sweet potatoes are. Test the tenderness of the potatoes by piercing with a fork.
  5. While the sheet pan is roasting, mix up the easy hummus dressing. Just mix together hummus, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust ingredients to your desired taste and consistency.
  6. Load up the sweet potatoes, drizzle on the sauce, and enjoy!

Recipe Tips!

  • Want to make this for meal prep? Follow the recipe but instead of loading up the potatoes and drizzling on the hummus dressing, I recommend storing the 3 components individually. Then you can reheat your sweet potato half and assemble. Everything will last for up to 5 days.
  • Want to make more or less servings? This recipe easily halves or doubles. The only thing that will change is you may need to use 2 sheet pans if you double the recipe.
  • Want to try a different variation? Play around with your favorite spices on the chickpeas and try using a flavored hummus for the dressing. The options are endless!
