Crunchy, fresh, and healthy, this hummus veggie sandwich combines hummus and avocado with loads of fresh veggies between layers of hearty whole wheat bread.

Quick & Easy Veggie Sandwich

Hummus veggie sandwich has been my jam lately, especially when I want fast and healthy lunch. This simple sandwich packs a lot of flavor and nutrition, making it ideal for an easy weekday meal.

You can use just about any vegetables you like. I found that a variety of soft and crunchy vegetables is the key to delicious flavor and texture.

The hummus and avocado serve as a base for the sandwich and also provide protein and fiber. Add a generous amount of both so the sandwich is not dry. I like to use whole wheat 7-grain bread for its wonderful texture but any bakery-style bread will work.

Additional Veggies to Try

Here are some other vegetables you can add. For best texture, remember to mix a variety of crunchy veggies with softer veggies.

  • carrots
  • tomatoes
  • broccoli or alfalfa sprouts
  • roasted red peppers
  • red onions
  • pickles
  • banana peppers
  • romaine lettuce
  • iceberg lettuce

Also, try adding cheese. Not only does it taste delicious but it’s a great way to make a sandwich more filling. Thinly sliced Swiss or Havarti cheese would be a good option.

Assembling Hummus Veggie Sandwich

First, spread a generous amount of hummus over both sides of the bread. Add avocado and mash it into the hummus with a fork. You can also add a light sprinkle of salt and pepper here.

Next, pile on your veggies in any order you like. Top it off with salt and pepper over both slices, close, slice, and enjoy!
