Sweet Potato and Sunflower Seed Wrap Filling

Smashing up baked sweet potatoes gives you the same creamy consistency of hummus along with a pop of rosy color, not to mention sweet potato’s awesome vitamin A. Sunflower seed butter (available in many supermarkets and natural food stores) offers a dose of vitamin E and lots of trace minerals. They come together with cumin, chipotle and lime for a little spice. This puree also works as a dip for fresh vegetables.

1 sweet potato, baked and cooled

1/4 cup sunflower seed butter

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

Juice of 1/2 lime

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mash or puree the sweet potato flesh, and mix in the remaining ingredients. May be refrigerated for several days. Makes about 1 cup, enough for 4 wraps.
