My husband arrived home from work and announced a friend of ours was on the way over. I started to make plans to buy beer and make nachos when I was also informed that he now only eats healthy, no longer drinks (!), and would be over in 10 minutes. So, I peered into the fridge, and came up with this snack which I invented on the spot. I then proclaimed my genius to anyone listening; (our friend who had by then arrived, my husband, the cat). The group all agreed, so here's the recipe.We went on to have a lovely evening talking about Alf and watching episodes of The Addam's Family.
- 1 Container of pre-made hummus any flavor. I used Kalamata olive flavor
- 4 Whole grain pitas or flat bread
- ⅓ c. Non-fat feta cheese
- ⅓ c. Pitted Greek olives - Look for them packed in water instead of oil like these from Martini's.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut up the pitas into wedges like you're cutting up a pie, so that there is 8 or 10 wedges from each pita.
- Lightly spray a cooking sheet with olive oil or other cooking spray.
- Put the pita wedges on the sheet, spray them lightly on both sides with olive oil, sprinkle with salt if desired, and bake for about 5 minutes on each side until they are golden brown and crisp.
- Dump the entire container of hummus into a medium sized bowl. I use a bowl that I usually serve salsa in.
- Cover the hummus entirely with the feta cheese.
- Place the olives in a ring around the inside of the bowl as shown.
- Place the bowl on a platter with the pita chips.
