Ingredients
  

Ingredients for the hummus

  • 150 gr spinach fresh young leaves
  • 400 gr chickpeas can be pre-cooked, in jar
  • 100 gr greek yogurt
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • ¼ lemon only the juice
  • salt and pepper

Ingredients for the toppings

  • ½ red onion
  • 2 radishes
  • ¼ cucumber
  • 3 cherry tomatoes
  • a few black olives
  • 1 tea spoon sesame seeds
  • ¼ tea spoon sweet paprika powder
  • ½ tbl spoon parsley flat leave type, fresh
  • 2 tbl spoon olive oil
  • 6 flatbread you can also use pita bread or sliced raw vegetables such as carrot and celery stalk

Instructions
 

  • First we make the hummus. Usually tahini (sesame seed paste) is used in the hummus, but I make a lighter version with yogurt.

Making the hummus

  • Rinse the chickpeas and put them together with the fresh spinach, yogurt, lemon juice and 2 tbsp olive oil in the cutter or blender. Mix and add a few tablespoons of water if necessary, but make sure you keep a firm puree with structure. (not a flat paste) Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the hummus on a plate.

The toppings

  • For the toppings, use vegetables according to your own taste. I've used the ones I like with this hummus and which give some extra crunch.
  • I partly cut the ½ red onion into fine rings and partly shredded it. I do this to have different structures, which presents nicer.
  • Cut the radishes and cucumber into fine slices, you can then halve the cucumber slices.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes into parts. Chop the parsley finely.
  • Place the various chopped vegetables and the olives on the hummus and drizzle with the olive oil. Finish with the sweet paprika, some sesame seeds and chopped parsley.

Notes

A fresh green dip or tapas, full of flavor and provided with extra vegetables. Vary to your own taste and you can make a delicious appetizer in no time.
