Sweet Potato Hummus

Made this awesome Sweet Potato Hummus this past weekend to take as an appetizer to a friends house - it was a hit! This is a nice lighter variation on traditional hummus. Here is the recipe:
-Peel and dice 2 medium sweet potatoes. Drizzle in olive oil , toss and bake at 400 for 25-30 min (until tender).
-Cut the tops off 3 garlic bulbs. Drizzle the cut side with olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake with the sweet potato, but leave in an extra 10 min.
-Place sweet potato, one can rinsed chickpeas, juice of one lemon, 3-4 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 tsp cumin, and the roasted garlic (squeeze cloves out of the bulb) into medium bowl.
-Puree with hand blender (or food processor). Salt and pepper to taste. Adjust flavor as needed.
-Toast raw sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Sprinkle onto hummus and top with dried cranberries (optional). Serve with corn chips, pita or crackers!
