If you make the sandwich with Ezekiel's sprouted whole wheat bread (160 calories for two slices) King's Harvest plain hummus (3 Tablespoons = 1.3 ounces= 80 calories) and 1/4 of a medium Hass avocado (50 calories) you are at 290 calories. The rest is just low calorie vegetables. A yummy and filling lunch. Read More

Was not expecting this to taste so good! It’s a simple sandwich but even with no added seasonings, it’s delicious. I’m flexitarian, but love that it’s vegan. I used only 2 tbsp of hummus, and I recommend using quality local bread, if possible. Read More

This sandwich was a hit and so easy to make using whatever you have on hand. I used just 2 tbsp. of hummus and loaded up on the veggies. I also used red and green bell pepper and roasted them in the oven along with some onions. This was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had and I didn't miss the meat. Read More

Delicious and easy. I used organic multigrain sandwich bread from Whole Foods, and filled with salad, grated carrots and black olives. I sprinkled lemon juice and Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning on the avocado. Even 12 year old grandson loves this sandwich. Read More
