Recipe: Best Veggie Sandwich Ever
One of the bloggers I met at this weekend's Foodbuzz Blogger Festival was Brittany from Eating Bird Food. She won a recipe challenge from Nature's Pride bread for this sandwich. At first glance it doesn't sound unusual. Hummus and veggies, we've all had that, right? But the hummus is white bean and basil, plus the sandwich gets amazing flavor from feta and peppadew peppers. Brittany told me she got these peppers, which are miniature and red, from the olive bar at Whole Foods. This is one of those ideal meals that is flavorful and satisfying, yet you feel good after eating it. The hummus recipe is separate and can be found on Brittany's blog.
You could of course play around with any combination of veggies you'd like, but I think the peppers and feta are essential. Enjoy!
Healthy Veggie Stuffed Hummus Sandwich (serves 1).
2 slices- 100% Whole Wheat Nature’s Pride Bread
2 tbsp – basil hummus
1/4 cup- alfalfa sprouts
3 slices- red onion (thinly sliced)
3- roasted peppadew peppers (sliced/chopped)
4/5 leaves- baby spinach
4 slices- cucumber (thinly sliced)
1 tbsp – feta cheese
Sea salt and ground pepper to taste
Lay the two slices of bread out on a plate or other surface. Spread the equal amounts of hummus onto one side of both slices of bread. Layer the remaining ingredients on one slice of the bread in the order listed. Carefully top with the second slice of bread, cut the sandwich in half and enjoy! This recipe could easily be doubled, tripled or quadrupled depending on how many people you are serving.
