Smashed Sweet Potato Spread

Sweet potatoes are turning out to be an easy ingredient to work into some of my favorite recipes. The combination of chickpeas and sweet potatoes makes a quick and nutritious spread.  Chickpeas are a pantry staple for our house,  they are a great source of protein and their mild flavor makes them an easy addition to most recipes.  This spread works well spread on a a toasted English muffin or added to a sandwich or wrap.
