Happy Wednesday! I don’t usually post on Wednesdays, but clearly, I’m a few days late sharing Monday’s recipe. I’m a little mixed up in my days and out of my routine it seems. Long weekends will do that. Better late than never I suppose!

Today’s recipe is not really a recipe. It’s the most simple sandwich, something I eat regularly when I’m busy or packing a last-minute lunch for work.

hummus, avocado and greens
Here’s what you need:
  • Hummus – Homemade, store-bought, flavored. Use your favorite!
  • Avocado
  • Leafy greens – I love mixed greens, but romaine, arugula or even kale will work.
  • Other vegetables of choice – I love adding a sliced tomato, sprouts and sliced cucumbers.
  • Cheese – This is optional of course. This recipe is vegan, but you can easily add cheese or even vegan cheese.

And that’s it! Add all of those ingredients in a sandwich and you’re good to go. 5 minutes is all you need.

Like I said, I’m not even sure this qualifies as a recipe, but either way, I hope it gives you an idea for quick lunches. Let’s face it, back to school is almost here.

As for the last weeks of summer, this sandwich is perfect to bring on a picnic or day trip. It’s sure to keep you full for hours thanks to the healthy fats in the avocado and the protein plus fiber in hummus.
