Ingredients to make a vegetarian hummus sandwich

There are so many variations of this sandwich possible that work really well. Below are my guidelines for building a yummy hummus sandwich.

  • Hummus: I always have some of my homemade hummus in the fridge! Wonderfully seasoned, this chickpea dip makes a versatile spread for sandwiches that’s just as filling as it is tasty.
  • Leafy greens: I like to add leafy greens into meals where I can, especially sandwiches. I used spinach for this sandwich, but arugula, cabbage, romaine lettuce, red lettuce and kale all work well.
  • Cheese: I like using feta cheese for a Mediterranean flavor, but this would work really well with mozzarella cheese or provolone cheese.
  • Cucumbers or tomatoes: They’re both rich in water content and add a freshness to the sandwich.
  • Peppers: Whether you use spicy peppers, sweet bell peppers or pickled banana peppers, or a combination of the three, this really adds a nice flavor punch and wonderful crunch to the sandwich. Get my tips for how to cut bell peppers.
  • Onions: I prefer to use red onions since they’re more mild than white or yellow onions in sandwiches. To make them more mild, you can soak them in ice water for 10 minutes.
  • Olives: I like to add a few kalamata olives for a real pop of flavor. Black or green would also work well. Don’t forget to pit them 😉

How to layer a hummus sandwich

Spread the hummus in an even layer on each slice of bread.

Tips for making a hummus sandwich

  1. Don’t forget to toast your bread. Even if you just lightly toast it, it will help to hold the weight of the hummus on both pieces of bread along with all the vegetables and condiments.
  2. Make your own hummus! It’s so much more flavorful than store-bought and it will keep for about a week in the fridge.
  3. Be sure to wash and dry your veggies. Use a salad spinner or paper towel to remove any excess moisture or your bread can get soggy.
  4. Add the seasoning on or underneath the cucumber layer. Because cucumbers have a high water content, they’ll absorb the seasoning best and help balance the flavor in the sandwich.

Frequently asked questions

What’s the best bread to use?

I like to use whole grain bread as it has a slightly nutty flavor that works really well with the hummus. This is also great served on a baguette or rolled up in a wrap.

Can you make these hummus sandwiches ahead of time?

These sandwiches are best enjoyed as soon as they are made. They are also great for lunchboxes, make them in the morning, wrap them in plastic wrap and store in the fridge when you can. I wouldn’t make them more than a day ahead of time.

  1. I made your veggie hummus sandwich today, I had to pack it for lunch since I work the outdoors most days and have to eat in the work can. It was delicious! I substituted feta for field roast chao cheese, and it was AMAZING! Thanks for sharing 😊 I love your account, and especially love your plant based recipes. Being a vegan, it’s nice seeing more plant based content being promoted/supported. You’re actually the only account that I still follow that’s not entirely plant based because I love seeing your content! Keep up the great work 🥰💚

    1. Yay, that makes me happy to hear. Thank you so much for taking the time to share. I truly appreciate it!
