how to make a good vegan sandwich with vegetables and hummus?
You can make this sandwich without a recipe, it is a sandwich that you can prepare with whatever vegetables you have at home. This sandwich is very easy to prepare and takes no time to prepare at all. Here are the steps on how to make it:
First. Make the chipotle hummus. This hummus recipe is a bit thicker than the normal one. The idea behind it is that you don’t want runny hummus, you want it to stay on the bread. You can prepare this recipe with or without chipotle.
Second. Grate the vegetables. In this case I used beets and carrots.
Third. Assemble the sandwich. Add mayonnaise to a few slices of bread, then hummus, put some lettuce leaves, vegetables, salt & pepper and that’s it.
TIPS FOR USING HUMMUS IN SANDWICHES
- This hummus has chipotle, but you don’t have to put it if you don’t like it or add less if you’re serving this to young children. The good thing about adding it to this sandwich is that chipotle has that delicious smoky flavor that goes perfectly with the sweetness of the carrot and beets. I add the chipotle peppers as a flavor booster.
- Try to keep the hummus you use thick; if it is a very soft hummus, it can wet the bread.
- To make sandwiches, I like to use cold hummus, straight from the fridge, it stays better.
WHICH BREAD IS THE BEST FOR VEGETABLE SANDWICH?
- Definitely the best bread is the one you like the most. I love using sprouted grain and seeded loaves of bread.
- These whole-grain loaves of bread usually have a slightly firmer texture than regular box bread.
- But you can use any loaf bread, baguette, rustic bread whichever you like the most.
TIPS TO MAKE THE PERFECT SANDWICH
✨A super tip is to put the sandwich filling between lettuce leaves or spinach or kale; any green will do, the idea is to protect the bread. You add mayonnaise, mustard, whatever you want to the bread, then the greens, and on top of them the rest of the filling.
The greens protect the sandwich bread from getting soggy and breaking on the first bite.
✨Another tip is not to assemble the sandwich until you are going to serve it. You can grate the vegetables and leave them in the fridge. You can make the hummus ahead of time and save it, add the avocado cut it just before assembling and serving the fresh vegetable sandwich.
