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.
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.
Spread the bottom piece of each with half of the hummus and sprinkle with shredded carrot. Divide the onions, mushrooms and cilantro, and add to each sandwich. Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired. That’s it. They’re ready to go. Serves 2.
