Hello lovelies, here it is: Christmas menu Part 2 – sweet potato hummus & beetroot walnut dip. I don’t know how it is with you but I can’t resist a dip platter. It’s up to you whether you serve it before or after the soup. I have shared quite a few dip recipes with you in the past, you can find a selection here. This time it’s another version of hummus with sweet potatoes and white beans, and a dip with roasted beetroot and walnuts. Let me tell you, both are incredibly delicious.


I just can’t get enough of hummus in general and this time I didn’t use chickpeas, but white beans as a basis. Due to that the dip is very creamy and I think it harmonizes quite wonderful with the sweet potato. Usually I would have added some spiciness to to it but this tie I didn't since our kids will ate with us.

The 2nd dip with beetroot and walnuts turned out very fluffy and has a great aroma because both beetroot and walnuts are roasted.

The dips themselves are very colorful and I added some colorful vegetables, such as carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers on the platter. I added one of my favorite bread types from blogger Sarah Britton from New Roots. The recipe can be found here. You definitely HAVE to try it, it tastes really awesome. We also had radishes, grapes and figs on our colorful plate. Of course, there is no limit to your imagination, and there will be something for every fellow dipper, ideal for all the different tastes that come together on Christmas everywhere.

We also used cress as a topping (I LOVE cress :-), micro greens (cress’s trendy brothers) and next to walnuts also balsamic pearls for the beetroot dip. Have you heard of them yet? I think they are very funny, small pearls filled with balsamic vinegar that burst in your mouth. Perfect match for a creamy dip.

So this was the 2nd part of this year’s Christmas menu. After we’re done with the starter and the appetizer plate, we can go on to the main course. Are you excited yet? I am, because I hope you will like it as much as we do. Here is a little hint, it has to do with potatoes, mushrooms and truffels, sounds great, doesn’t it?

Love, Verena
