The other day I tweeted about eating a hummus & avocado sandwich, and that it was pure bliss (it was). I got a few excited responses from other hummus-avocado enthusiasts, so I figured this was a good, simple recipe to share with the world.
A hummus and avocado sandwich is the perfect quick, filling, and amazingly delicious (and vegan) sandwich. The chickpeas in the hummus give you a nice bit of protein (especially when paired with a sprouted grain bread like Ezekiel), and the avocado is rich in good fats, vitamin E (great for skin!), B vitamins, potassium, and other exciting nutrients.
Together, they are the perfect combo when you want a satisfying lunch or if you have a vegan coming to visit and have no idea what to give them. ;)
Here’s my recipe for this friendly little sandwich:
- 1/2 avocado, sliced
- 2 slices of Ezekiel sprouted grain bread
- Hummus – enough to spread a thick layer on both slices of bread (make your own here or use organic store-bought, flavor of your choice)
- 2 slices of tomato
- Pinch of chopped cilantro
- Juice from 1 lemon slice
- Drizzle of hot sauce
- Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Spread hummus on both slices
Place sliced avocado and sliced tomato on the bread
Sprinkle with cilantro
Squeeze lemon juice on top
Add sea salt & pepper to taste
Drizzle with hot sauce
Hope you enjoy this one…if you have a sandwich press that would probably make it extra delish. This sandwich is a little messy, but it’s also extremely FUN.
