  1. Yummy! I used homemade black bean hummus (#113038). I didn't have any tapenade so chopped up a couple kalamata and pimento-stuffed green olives along with a few capers and a dash of chopped garlic and used that in its place. I think I'll try toasting the bread next time for a textural change. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Oh this was good and so healthy. I made them at first with the tapenade, but wasn't happy with the flavor of the tapenade. Just straight up carrots cucumbers and hummus was great.
  3. Very flavorful! One of the few veggie sandwiches (without cheese melted on it) that I have truly loved! It seems like too much to put the hummus and tapenade on both pieces of bread but do makes for a very moist and delicious sandwich! I made it a second time on pita and it wasn't quite as good.
  4. Next time it might help to mention the FLAVOR of the hummus since it comes in many varieties. Can't believe this and other recipes say add hummus and that's it. Garlic? Black bean? Olive? Roasted pepper? And on and on. WHICH ONE?? How can that information not be included?
  5. I made this with and without the tapenade and think I could enjoy it either way. Nice combo of flavors and textures. Even my DH liked it and I will make it again.
