Homemade hummus is one of my favorite store-bought items to make at home & it is such a great way to consume a number of additional vitamins & minerals. You can incorporate literally any flavor into the spread that you can think of! This years version features sweet potato & turmeric, inspired by the flavors of Angelic Bakehouse’s Garden Wraps. The Turmeric & Sweet Potato Wraps give the hummus a beautiful yellow color, as well as an additional boost of nutrients.

There are so many ways you can enjoy this hummus too! You can serve the hummus with fresh vegetables, spread it onto a wrap or pair it with my homemade garlic crisps made with Angelic Bakehouse’s Garden Wraps! The wraps come in a variety of flavors (turmeric & sweet potato, kale + spinach, & beet), all made with sprouted whole grains. They toast up so nicely in the oven, making for a healthy alternative to tortilla chips.
