I love hummus. It’s perfect for snacking and makes a great lunch item. Six Quick and Easy Hummus Lunch Boxes and Simple DIY Hummus Platter are some of my go-to hummus posts.

Ultimate Hummus and Veggie Sandwich

Few things are more delicious than a perfectly executed sandwich. With summer around the corner and today being National Hummus Day I thought a veggie hummus sandwich would be the perfect way to celebrate. I often go to a restaurant and buy a delicious sandwich and I always roll my eyes a little at myself when I do because it’s just a simple sandwich. But simple sandwiches are so very good! I think the difference between a sandwich you make at your house and the one you might order at a restaurant are the creative/fun/delicious extras and the number of ingredients the restaurant uses compared to what you might make at home.

I’m guilty of making a million ham or turkey sandwiches on bread with some mayo, a leaf of lettuce, and if I’m really on top of it, a slice of tomato. While that tastes fines it just isn’t a “restaurant-style” sandwich. I’m not reinventing the wheel on this post, I’m just here to inspire you a little to get out of your own sandwich making rut and try this beauty. The key for making this restaurant-worthy sandwich at home is using Sabra hummus to add a big old flavor boost as well as a big variety of vegetables too. You are going to love this! Plus, you can’t go wrong with eating a pile of vegetables in the middle of the day.

What is hummus made of?

Hummus is made with chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and salt.

Are chickpeas good for you?

Yes! They are a great source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Chickpeas are high in protein and keep that digestive system moving.

Instructions 

  • Prepare all your ingredients. You can toast the bread if you like in a toaster or leave it untoasted.
  • Add a thick layer of hummus to the inside all each piece of bread. On two pieces of bread add a thin layer of fresh spinach leaves. Top with grated carrot, then tomato slices, add some salt and pepper to the tomato slices, then add avocado, then red onion, then alfalfa sprouts.
  • Add the second piece of bread, hummus side down. Slice in half and serve right away.

Notes

I loved Sabra Chipotle Hummus on this for a zippy little kick and my husband preferred the traditional hummus. I think just about any flavor of Sabra hummus would be delicious including the roasted garlic.
