Do you have a can of chickpeas? Well, you have a quick and easy plant-based meal. Yes, Hummus (pureed chickpeas) is one of the simplest and tastiest plant-based dishes. You can dip it, spread, and mix it in whatever your heart desires. One of my favorite ways to enjoy hummus is on a L.A.T.O (Lettuce, Avocado, Tomato, Onion) Hummus Sandwich!
I don’t eat sandwiches too often, but when I do this satisfies my sandwich craving. What I love about a hummus sandwich is that you can fill it with whatever veggies you like. I love keeping it simple. This sandwich sort of reminds me of a BLT (minus the bacon). But I must say it is 10x better and I don’t get indigestion after eating it. Lol
So, the next time you have a taste for a simple but tasty sandwich, whip up this hummus and have at it!

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. NOTE: Be sure to reserve at least 2 TBSP of aquafaba (liquid from the can). Add all remaining hummus ingredients to a food processor. Blend all ingredients. Add aquafaba to thin out the hummus. Continue to process until the hummus is smooth.
Spread the desired amount of hummus on both slices of bread. Dash with red pepper flakes if a little heat is desired. Add remaining veggies. Assemble the sandwich, slice and enjoy!
