I was hungry so I went over to my refrigerator to find something for lunch. Sadly, there wasn’t anything to eat! I did notice the container with enough hummus to fill me up. I’ve been eating hummus for a snack for the past week with multigrain cracker. Unfortunately, we ran out of those flavorful crackers :(. That’s when my brain lit up!!! I had bread in the pantry, along with a cucumber, tomato, and salad in the refrigerator. I was going to make a hummus sandwhich 🙂 !
I’ve tried a Panera Bread’s Cilantro Basil Hummus Sandwhich a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed the flavors. The only thing that I really didn’t like about it was that all the fillings made the bread very soggy. I decided that when I make my sandwhich, that I’ll have to eat it as soon as I’m finished preparing it so it won’t get soggy.
Here is what I used:
- 2 slices of Oatmeal Bread
- Sliced cucumbers
- Sliced tomatoes
- Sabra Roasted Pine Nut Hummus
- mixed greens
How I made it:
- Toast the 2 slices of bread (helps so that it won’t get soggy as fast).
- Spread desired hummus amount on both slices of bread.
- Pile sliced cucumbers and tomatoes on top.
- Add the leafy greens.
- Cut sandwich.
There you have it! It’s not only delicious, but also very healthy for you! Next time, I’ll try to make my own hummus. I’m sure home-made is better than a packaged.
