I cannot believe I haven’t shared this hummus veggie club sandwich yet since it’s one of my favorite meat-free office lunches.
As you know, I typically eat grain-free, but this is one sandwich I indulge with using my son’s gluten-free bread. I love layering on the hummus instead of mayo over my bread, especially when it’s a flavored hummus. I feel it takes the sandwich up a notch, as Emeril would say, and it’s truly delicious.
Watch how easy it is to make in this short video.
If you’ve been following my recipes for a while, you probably already know how much I love eating hummus. It comes to the rescue when I have nothing left to cook from in my fridge by helping me make the juiciest chicken breasts ever, when I want a warm dip that will rock my guests’ world or a cold dip with all the Mediterranean flavors in each bite, and I even use it to stuff my avocados. And the best part is that it’s extremely nutritious and packed with protein.
It should come to no surprise that I would also use it in a sandwich. My husband, who doesn’t like “cold and crunchy” in his sandwiches, he also doesn’t like salads, by the way, likes this sandwich grilled. This is a great option because the melted cheese will remind you of a grilled cheese, but healthier!
I frequently make my easy broccoli pesto for dinner. It’s a perfect way to get my kids to eat broccoli, without them knowing. I always make enough pesto to use for other meals in the week. It’s perfect on this Hummus Veggie Club Sandwich, because the pesto complements the hummus!
Whether you buy or make your own pesto, this is one delicious way of using up some of the leftover sauce that’s ben sitting in your fridge.
My final note is that you don’t have to make this sandwich a triple-decker; but you know I could’t call it a club sandwich had I left it with two pieces of bread, right? Grab some bread, head to your fridge and make yourself one. You’ll be glad you did.
