Recipe by SweetJ
This sandwich is a combo of all my favorites...hummus, tomatoes, artichokes,pita bread, and cheese. What's not to love?! I like it both cold or warm, just depends on what I’m in the mood for. Its perfect for a light lunch or cut it into wedges and serve as an appetizer. Make sure you don't bypass toasting the pita bread. I'm not sure why, but it makes all the difference in taste and texture. I've used both commercially prepared and homemade hummus. They both work fine, but if you have the time definitely go with your own mix. Otherwise give Gingerbee's Hummus Amongus (#22060) a whirl...yum! If you don’t have gruyere cheese, any plain old swiss works just fine. Enjoy!
- 2 pita bread (flatbread rounds, without the pocket)
- 1⁄4 cup hummus
- snipped green onion (to taste)
- 1⁄2 cup canned water-packed artichoke hearts (not marinated kind)
- 1 ripe tomatoes, sliced
- 2 slices gruyere cheese
Directions See How It's Made
- Toast pita bread rounds (I just place them in my toaster over, two at a time).
- Spread 2 tbsp hummus on two of the toasted pitas.
- Sprinkle snipped green onions over hummus
- Divide drained artichokes and tomato slices and layer them on the pitas.
- Place 1 slice of gruyere on each
- For cold sandwich, place remaining pitas on top of each and serve.
- For warm sandwich, put the layered pita back in oven/toaster oven until cheese is melted. Place remaining 2 pitas on top and serve.
