Hummus + Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches

Welcome back to QCK!

Last week I shared a recipe for a really delicious garden veggie sandwich. It was full of great farmers market finds and a shmear of southwest avocado spread. This week I’m sharing a sandwich that’s slightly hardier, but just as delicious and still really healthy, also vegan so added bonus there.

This sandwich is another garden/farmers market fresh option. I got everything with the exception of the bread and hummus from the market. I often make my own hummus, but for this recipe I was feeling kinda lazy so I just picked some up from the store. My favorite brand is Baba’s Hummus, it’s so creamy and well seasoned. They’re also local to Minnesota, added bonus.

So the sandwich gets a big shmear of hummus, top and bottom, you can use whatever flavor you like. Then a layer of roasted red bell pepper for a sweet, slightly smokey, flavor and then a plethora of vegetables, I like heirloom tomatoes for some acidity, a little bit of red onion for a nice bite, cucumbers and mixed greens to lighten it up and add some crunch. Everything gets stuffed between to pieces of warm ciabatta, I love the nice crust and soft, spongy inside. You could also use a nice sourdough.

Substitutions and Add Ons

  • Tomato can be substituted with sun-dried tomato or omitted.
  • Lettuce can be replaced with alfalfa sprouts or micro greens of your choosing.
  • Red Peppers can be raw or roasted.
  • Ciabatta can be replaced with sourdough, cottage, baguette or a whole grain option.
  • Hummus can be replaced with a southwest or pesto mayo.
  • You can also add turkey, bacon, hot peppers, mayo.
