Blog posts aren't always planned. It has been the opposite more times than I can count. I may spend time plotting and planning a recipe only to end up with something that never sees the food blogging light of day.
Other times I have no intention of putting a meal on the blog only to finish and think – that's kind of pretty, and darn tasty. In these cases you can find me sprinting through the living room with a plate in hand to the room where I take my photos. I usually mumble something to my husband like – it will be ready in just a minute - as he waits patiently for dinner.
This is one of the unplanned, sprint-through-the-living-room posts. This very simple sandwich ended up hitting the spot so well that we had it again for lunch the next day.
Hummus Sandwich with Carrot and Cilantro
2 pieces baguette (about 4 inches each)
1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
2 green onions, whites and greens sliced
3 white button mushrooms, diced
Small handful of fresh cilantro
Hot sauce (optional)
Slice open each piece of baguette, careful not to cut all the way through. You'll be stuffing in a lot of ingredients so it's better to leave one side intact.
