Veggie Flatbread Sandwich w/ Hummus

Photobucket

This sandwich has quickly become one of my healthy diet staples. It has tons of protein, vegetables, and whole grains. It is filling and delicious. And if you make them ahead of time, can be a fancy schmancy lunch item for having company. I use my homemade hummus on this sandwich but I've also used tzatziki and mayo.

I recommend using Peppridge Farms new Whole Grain Sandwich Thins which are only 100 calories and have 5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. And so so so good. Once you toast them, they stay crispy, so you can make these sandwiches ahead of time since they require some prep, put them in the fridge, and they are still crunchy a couple hours later. So when you finally get your baby down for a nap, make your beloved sandwich, and go to take a bite as the baby lets our a howl, you always come back to it later. Not that I know from experience or anything.

What you need:
-Flatbread.
-Hummus
-Cucumber, sliced thin
-Tomato, sliced round
-Avocado sliced long
-Alfalfa sprouts
-Gouda, thinly sliced (Also works well with Provolone or any other light, smooth cheese)

What you do:
-Use the hummus as a "glue." I put a thin layer of hummus between every layer in order to hold the sandwich together.
-Spread the hummus on both sides of the bread.
-Pile on the sliced avocado, cucumber and sprouts on one side.

-Place the tomato on the hummus on the other side with the sliced cheese on top

Put together, and enjoy!!

I'd be starving in under 1 hour. Maybe that's why I suck at diets. :-)
