Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario
Recipe Source: Bon Appetit February 2009. I'm getting tired of having soup for lunch every day. This sandwich is both delicious and keeps well in the lunch bag. Make sure that the hummus is thick for the sandwiches. If you're using it for a dip you can thin it out a bit with some olive oil. The hummus keeps for 1 week when stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator.

Mmmm, what a hearty, lovely lunch! I added sliced mushrooms and fresh tomatoes to my sandwich, and left off the cilantro as I am not really a fan. Later in the season I look forward to making this again with fresh basil leaves. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg Swap 35.
