Two Peas and Their Pod: Vegetable Hummus Sandwich

Friday, September 18, 2009

Vegetable Hummus Sandwich

This week has been crazy. I was sick for most of the week, Monday-Wednesday. I worked on Thursday, and now it is already my weekend. My schedule is all messed up, I haven't gotten enough done this week, but I guess that is life. I am just glad I am feeling better for the weekend.

Next Friday we will be in California for the Blogher Food Conference. I am beyond excited. I can't wait to meet up with fellow food bloggers and learn more about food blogging. San Francisco is also one of my favorite cities, Josh proposed at a park overlooking the Golden Gate bridge, so the city is special for us:) If you are going to the conference leave a comment and let me know so I can look for you:)

Have you tried Arnold or Orowheat Thins? (They are Orowheat in Utah). I finally found them and love them! They make the best healthy sandwiches. One thin has 100 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and is made with whole grains and no fructose corn syrup.

Yesterday I made a tasty veggie sandwich. I spread my thin with hummus and added lettuce, lemon cucumber slices, fresh garden tomatoes, red and green pepper strips, and fresh basil. It was delicious!

I also like fresh peanut or almond butter, banana slices, and agave nectar sandwiches. You really can top these thins with anything. They are a great base for a healthy meal or snack.

Have a Happy Friday!

Vegetable Hummus Sandwich

1 Arnold or Orowheat Sandwich Thin
Lemon Cucumber Slices
Tomato slices
Red and green pepper strips
Fresh basil

Toast the sandwich thin-optional but I like to. Spread hummus on the thin and add veggies. You can use whatever veggies you like. Feel free to add meat or cheese if you wish.

I wish I was going to Blogher but it was too close to the India trip. I am going to Foodbuzz though & looking forward to getting back to SF. My husband also proposed in SF though it was while watching the Iron Chef Battle Bacon.

PB&B sandwiches do indeed rock. I like mine with honey. I have to be careful how many I eat though 'cause the 'naners do funny things to my digestive tract.

Enjoy the conference. What a great thing for you. Sounds like a great time.

Your proposal story is so sweet!

I like the sandwich thins. Although I must admit I don't put vegetables on them. They are pretty good with Nutella though!
