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

And I can’t think of another way to enjoy them all at once, other than in a sandwich with red onion, fresh sprouts, slather of hummus and 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 that I’ve come back to 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. 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!
