Sweet Potato Pie in Peanut Crust

Sweet Potato Pie in Peanut Crust

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

Sweet potatoes make a delicious basis for a custard-style pie with a luscious texture. Two surprising ingredients add a deep, rich flavor to the pie: chickpeas in the pie filling and peanuts in the crust. They are botanically related (both are legumes) and have a similar nutty flavor.

Makes 10 wedges


1 cup graham cracker crumbs

¼ cup dry-roasted peanuts

1 tablespoon plus ¾ cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons dark sesame oil

1 cup cooked sweet potato flesh (from about 8 ounces of sweet potato weighed with skin)

1 cup cooked chickpeas or canned (rinsed and drained)
