💭 variation ideas
Since I have been experimenting with sweet potato dips, I can't stop. As there are so many great possibilities. Sometimes I make it 'smoky' by adding smoked paprika and / or smoked liquid. You can even infuse some lapsang tea (smoky tea) into a plant based milk, and add that to the sweet potato puree. Or sometimes I make the dip more Asian-style with ginger, extra lime juice and coriander.
The possibilities are endless 😉
Are you having a party, or an apero feast coming up. Try a variation of dips for your guest to Enjoy. Like a hot red pepper salsa, or a coriander & lime hummus, a vegan aioli, or tartare sauce. Many options possible for a creative platter with dips. You can serve it with raw vegetables like carrot and celery sticks, Celeriac frites or sweet potato crisps, or just some bread and breadsticks.
🥗 Serving ideas
Like above, serve this delicious dip at a party with some raw vegetables. Or serve it as a side puree with for example a cauliflower steak, or with falafels. But this dip could perfectly function as a spread on your sandwich or wrap. Very nutritious and delicious!
