The theme for this weeks Sunday Suppers is beans. Beans are a fantastic food. They are a complex carbohydrate and have a low glycemic index. They are also loaded with fiber and are a low-fat protein source. Wow! Beans are little miracle workers. I always have dry and canned beans in my pantry. They are so incredibly versatile that I had trouble deciding what to do with them. I am still on a quest to make the best baked beans from scratch using dry beans. I haven’t mastered it yet. I could have tried again. There is always bean salad or my latest obsession, beans with pasta. In the end, I went with hummus. I know it certainly isn’t unique, but it sure does look pretty in this layered dip. So I started with a basic hummus recipe. To me, hummus must be loaded with lemon and garlic, the more the better. I don’t bother with olive oil. It doesn’t need it; so why add the calories. The next layer is creamy tzatziki. I used my basic recipe from Leg of Lamb Gyros with Tzatziki. Cucumber and some fresh mint is the star of this layer. Next lettuce. Lettuce – yes for crunch. I sprinkled some oregano on it for added flavor. Then the pretty layer. Chunks of tomato, red pepper, black olives and green onion add a punch of flavor and color. Of course, it has to be topped with some salty, crumbled feta.

Be sure to make this dip in a glass bowl so the gorgeous layers are prominent. It will wet your guests appetite to see all the deliciousness and color. I also happen to think Greek Layer Hummus Dip would be perfect for Easter. Grab some fresh pita or pita chips. You also need a long spoon. I used a cocktail spoon. It has a long handle; so you can sink the spoon all the way down to the bottom to get a little bit of each scrumptious layer. You will be tempted to eat it right off the spoon. Plop it onto a baked pita chip and enjoy each luxurious bite. You might want to have a napkin ready. It is a little messy! You will be tempted to load your chip up. If there are any leftovers, fill a tortilla with some dip and enjoy a delectable lunch the next day.
