I had never heard of a hummus sandwich until recently. I follow Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod on twitter. One day she tweeted that she had a hummus and veggie sandwich for lunch. I had never heard of such a thing. So I asked her about it. It’s basically a veggie sandwich. However, most veggie sandwiches I’ve seen use cream cheese. You basically use the hummus in place of the cream cheese. So I decided to give it a try. I figured it would help use up veggies from my garden. It wasn’t bad. I must admit I’d take however that I’d take the cream cheese over the hummus on my sandwich any day, but hummus is much better for you. This sandwich was also very filling, I couldn’t even finish the whole thing. So if you are looking for a good and health lunch, give a hummus sandwich a try.
Bread, of your choice (I used a honey whole wheat bagel, Maria used homemade wheat bread)
Hummus (you can make your own, but I used store bought roasted red pepper hummus)
Fresh veggies ( I used cucumber, tomato, sprouts, and red onion you could also use avocado, lettuce, bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant, herbs, olives, spinach, etc.)
Take your bread and spread one piece with hummus, just like you would with peanut butter. Top with favorite veggies followed by other slice of bread and enjoy!
