RECIPE: 
Sweet Potato Hummus
Makes 4 cups
 
Sweet potatoes’ orange hue is the beautiful result of a wealth of betacarotene, which helps support eye health and immunity. Chickpeas provide a rich source of soluble fiber and B- vitamins for cardiovascular health. By serving this dip with crisp- tender vegetables such as red peppers and broccoli, you will also get vitamin C, selenium, and sulforaphane, an antioxidant shown to prevent certain types of cancers. Whole-wheat pita bread is another healthful, fiber-rich alternative to crackers.
 
1. Fill a large pot with 2 inches of water; set a steamer basket (or
colander) inside pot, and bring water to a boil. Add potatoes; reduce
heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, 10 to 12
minutes.
2. Transfer potatoes to a food processor. Add chickpeas, lemon juice,
tahini, oil, cumin, and garlic. Puree until smooth, about 1 minute; thin
with up to 2 tablespoons of water if necessary. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and
season with pepper. Let cool; refrigerate for up to 1 week in an airtight
container. Garnish with paprika before serving.
 
1 pound sweet potatoes (about 2), peeled and cut into 1- inch pieces
1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons)
¼ cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
½ teaspoon hot or smoked paprika, for garnish

    Highly Recommended!!

    I am a Registered Nurse and am so impressed with this cookbook, it has so many added features that I appreciate, such as nutritional information, glossary of terms and info on herbs, vitamins and minerals, spices, and how all of them benefit the body! The cookbook introduces many new vegetables, which I love, because I am not known to try new veggies, but with this one, I have been! My 24 year old daughter has tried many of the recipes for her family and they love them too. I like the recipes because they are made 'healthy' and don't use butter or cream to make them yummy! I like the 'clean' way of eating!!

    more from this reviewer

    Never mind healthy, these are delicious recipes.

    My girlfriend and I checked this book out of the library when it first came out, and after a week of cooking, we couldn't buy it fast enough. The recipes are not only healthy, but imaginative, which is not something found in every "healthy" cookbook. It is particular good when it comes to adding more greens (kale, chard, watercress) to your diet, but has plenty of healthy meat options too. Most are fairly simple and do not require exotic ingredients or cooking methods, which is helpful to us because we are only cooking for two. We've only made a handful of recipes so far, but there isn't one in the book that doesn't look worth trying. A great addition to our cookbook library (and one that didn't break the bank).

    This a great book on healthy recipes from basic ingredients. The

    This a great book on healthy recipes from basic ingredients. The golden rules of this book are to choose a wide variety of natural unprocessed foods, buy organic, shop locally and eat seasonally, think of fruits and vegetables in terms of a rainbow (eat a variety of colors),limit salt intake, buys grains and seeds and nuts, choose olive oil or canola oil over other oils, use organic and low sodium broth in cartons, plan ahead for shopping, and fill half your plate with vegetables and grains, and lean protein. The book is a better read than most cookbooks because it breaks down recipes into their raw ingredients such as broccoli or carrots and gives one the health benefits of those individual components.
