  1. 1

    In the oven at 375, bake Sweet Potatoes for 45-50 minutes.

    While Potatoes are baking, in a bowl add Chickpeas, 1.5 Tablespoons of Kosterina Spicy EVOO, Cumin, Paprika, Salt, and Pepper.  Mix to combine before adding chickpeas to a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, until crispy.

    Once Sweet Potatoes are out of the oven, cut them in half and use the back of a spoon to push down the middle of the potato to mimic a bowl to fill with your spinach and chickpeas.

    Top potatoes with Spinach, followed by chickpeas.  In a small bowl, mix together hummus and water to make the dressing.  Drizzle on top of potato and serve.
