  1. This looks so interesting and so healthy! Sweet potatoes are rarely used in Greece, but we’d love to try this one out, as it’s also perfect now that we’re in the final days of Lent (Orthodox Easter is on May 1st).
    Thank you for the yummy idea! xoxo

    • I love love this dish! To be honest, I did not know what to expect when I first tried the recipe but it turned out to be absolutely delicious! To date, this is one of my favourite vegan/vegetarian meals to eat. The combination of the seasoned greens, with the sweet potato and spicy hummus…mouth is watering just typing this :)! Those sweet potatoes in the pics did not last lol..
