Sweet Potato with Pea Humus

Sweet Potato with Pea Humus

After a short summer break, I'm back for you today with one of my current favorite recipes.

Actually, I think it's really hard for me to specify a certain meal as my favorite one, because there are so many great dishes.
But this one is definitely one of my classics.

Even if you do not like sweet potatoes, you should give it a try.
The combination with pea humus makes it so delicious.

Last week I didn't publish a new post on our blog because we spent the summer holidays at the baltic sea.

Although the weather didn't show up as the perfect summer, we very much enjoyed the time with our kids in the nature, went on long walks along the beach and filled our lungs with fresh salty sea air.

Now we are back, the sun is shining and everything is green and blooming at home.

Oh how I love that!
The nature and I, we just belong together.

The best thing after such a brief change of scenery is the cosy feeling when you come home again.
I really love the place where we live - the house, the garden, the nature and the forest.

In only two weeks everything has grown here enormously - the herbs, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, and even some types of berries are already ripe.

The first thing we did was a walk through our garden to check out everything and nibble on the fruity treats.

That brings me a lot of ideas for new recipes.

But first I want to start the week, as already mentioned, with one of my current favorites.

Noone wants to spend much time indoors if the weather is nice outside.
Therefore this recipe does almost not need any effort in preparation and turns out to be such a healthy and colorful looking dish.

I hope you will like it as much as I do.


I'm a big sweet potato lover.
When I bake them, I mostly like to combine them with something raw on top as you can see here with the pea humus.

Peas are really healthy and come with an extra dose of valuable protein.
This is especially important for people like me who do not consume any animal products.


Peas provide a lot of vitamins such as A, B, C, D, E, and minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus and potassium.

As our peas are not quite ripe yet in the garden, I used frozen ones here.
Frozen peas retain most of their vitamins and are therefore better than the ones in the glass or can, where mostly salt, sugar and flavorings are added.

I'm looking forward to the next pea humus from our own harvest.


We send you warm summer greetings!
