Meatless Monday – Toasted Hummus Sandwiches

An easy to put together veggie sandwich! Mix up the flavor with different varieties of hummus. Delicious with fresh veggies as well as grilled/roasted veggies. Perfect for lunch or a light dinner.


French bread
1/2 cup hummus (I like the roasted red pepper flavor)
veggies (try fresh, grilled, roasted… anything!)

1. Slice french bread open. Spread hummus on both halves of the loaves.
2. If desired, toast sandwich under broiler until warm and toasty.
3. Top with veggies and enjoy!
