Why hummus? It’s healthy and filling, a perfect substitute for meat in a sandwich, packed with protein and fiber.
2 T. olive oil
1 sliced red onion
2 slices whole grain/multi-grain bread (or multi-grain sandwich thins)
½ c. fresh spinach leaves
3 slices beefsteak tomato
1 T pesto
2 T hummus
Black pepper
2 slices avocado, opt.
Directions:
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 serving
1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil and sauté onion slice 3-4 minutes, until translucent. Set aside.
2. Brush one side of each slice of bread with remaining olive oil. Place one slice of bread, oiled side down, on a work surface. Layer spinach, tomato, pesto, hummus and sautéed onions onto bread. Top with second slice of bread, oiled side out.
3. Using the same skillet, cook sandwich over medium heat until toasted, about 3-4 minutes per side. As you cook, lightly press down on sandwich.
