Go into any supermarket and the ever expanding selection of hummus will tell you hummus has become the snack of the moment. Philadelphia just opened a “Hummusiya” restaurant called Dizengoff, named after the famous food street in Tel Aviv. A restaurant serving nothing but hummus? You bet! Hummus is a no-guilt snack food gaining in popularity because it is nutritious, packed with good fat, fiber, protein and tons of flavor. This creamy sweet potato hummus offers a seasonal twist on the traditional hummus. It is easy to make and such a pretty addition to the menu when presented in a hollowed out squash. Serve with warm pita points.
