Roasted and Spiced Sweet Potato Dip Recipe

So we had some leftover baked sweet potatoes from one of our dinners and I didn’t want to see them go to waste so I had a look online and saw a recipe for a sweet potato dip. It was a really good idea, I spiced it up a bit and enjoyed it very much. It is smooth and silky with a lovely warmth to finish. It was so easy and quick to make as everything is chucked in the food processor and whizzed. I definitely won’t be chucking away left over sweet potatoes again.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 left over baked sweet potato (or bake in 200 degrees oven for 1 hour)
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 3 tbsp tahini paste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • chilli oil (recipe here)


  1. To make the dip add all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until smooth. Place the mixture into a serving bowl and make a groove using you finger on the top of the dip. Fill with some chilli oil. Enjoy.
