This one was a request from my sister, who loves sweet potato wedges and wanted them just dipped into hummus with crunchy seeds on top.

As I compromise, she agreed for me to add the stew–I mean, you’ve got to have a veggie stew, right? So in the end–It’s a bit of a classic Niki dish–layering flavours and textures.

I combined sweet and smoky sweet potato, roast pepper and chickpea stew with gloriously creamy butter bean hummus AND sweet potato wedges!

I love the combination of smooth cold and creamy with warm and oozing veggies.

Tips
You can, of course, use standard white potatoes
It’s not necessary to roast the peppers–you can cook them in the stew. But as the potatoes are being roasted–why not roast the peppers at the same time–it adds tons of flavour.
