I love summer with its abundance of cool and juicy veggies – tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocados are a few of my favorites!

And I can’t think of a better way to enjoy them all at once other than in a sandwich with red onion, fresh sprouts, a slather of hummus, a sprinkle of mineral salt, and fresh cracked pepper.

It’s a simple hummus sandwich that I deem my ‘favorite’! Loaded with flavor and juiciness, it’s a classic vegan sandwich I’ve made many times over the years.

It’s nothing short of wonderful, and I think you’re going to love it as much as I do!

How To Make Veggie Hummus Sandwich

  • If you like your bread toasted, start by toasting your bread.
  • When adding condiments, I like to spread a thin layer of hummus (or vegan mayo) on both slices of bread. You can use as much as you like.
  • Layer one slice of bread with the cucumber and red onion, and on the other slice, layer the tomato, avocado, and sprouts or leafy greens.
  • Top it off with a sprinkle of salt and pepper over both slices, add sandwich top, slice in half, and enjoy!

Simple, delicious, and ready in minutes. Enjoy the taste of summer!

Start by toasting your bread, or leave untoasted.

Add a nice layer of hummus to both inside slices of bread. Layer with the tomato, avocado, sprouts/leafy greens. cucumber, red onion (in any way order you like), and sprinkle with a little mineral salt and fresh cracked pepper.

If you find that your hummus is very thick, try adding a tablespoon of water at a time and mix well until desired consistency. I prefer my hummus to be on the thinner side for spreads.
