My love breakfast is here to stay, Period.
Despite being to more than 25 cities, towns and villages over 3 months and then back to my home ground for now, this is something that hasn’t changed in me. In fact, the love has only grown. The feeling of waking up to a breakfast made with love is what keeps my day going. A day without a good breakfast and everything comes crashing down in a couple of hours.
Breakfast sandwiches for everyone!
During my summer break, I would cook up elaborate meals soon after I woke up. Sometimes for myself and at other times for loved ones who would share my love for this meal of the day. While in Bombay (sure still is Bombay for me), I went overboard in buying exotic vegetables that I missed both, buying and cooking, back home.
This Hummus & Greens Sandwich is the outcome of that one morning when I experimented with hummus as a sandwich spread along with some of my favourite greens and reds and yellows 🙂
The result was interesting. Anything with hummus has to be, doesn’t it? So this is a simple dish to make in case you have leftover hummus or even if you want to make fresh hummus. Kanika has shared her hummus recipe here. I shall follow up with mine soon enough.
So for this recipe, all you have to do is get some nice bread. I got some multigrain sandwich bread and lots of green veggies to fill in and you’re all set.
Here’s how I made Greens & Hummus Sandwich
Greens & Hummus Sandwich
Prep Time: 10 mins (with ready Hummus), Active time: 5 mins; Total Time: 15 mins
Yields: 2 sandwiches
- Hummus, 4-5 tablespoons
- Sandwich bread of your choice, 4 slices
- Bell peppers (green/ red/ yellow), slices long, 1/2 cup
- Iceberg lettuce, 1 cup
- Onions, sliced, 1/4 cup
- Salt to taste
- Chilli flakes to taste
- Parsley, a few sprigs (optional)
Spread the hummus on the bread slices. Add a layer of Iceberg lettuce and then sprinkle the cut bell peppers and onions along with a little salt and chilli flakes.
Alternatively, you can also sauté the onions and peppers to make them a little soft, although I like them nice and crunchy.
Garnish with Parsley and serve with a nice cool drink like this watermelon water.
I had cut watermelon pieces and left them refrigerated overnight in a jar of water to get this sweet tasting water with the goodness of watermelon.
Here’s what my breakfast looked like
A splash of red with the sunshine pouring in and warm sandwiches oozing with the goodness of hummus. And what does your breakfast look like
