Hummus Sandwiches with Carrot and Cilantro Recipe | Fake Food Free

Blog posts aren’t always planned. They have been the opposite of planned 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 ā€“ 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 ā€“ it will be ready in just a minute – as he waits patiently for dinner.

This sandwich is a perfect example of that. It’s a super simple dinner that you can turn to on a busy night. 

You can use any type of hummus you like. I added a link in the recipe for my almond butter hummus as one idea. The veggies are open for experimentation as well. I love this combo, but you might find a few more in your fridge that would dress it up nicely. Feel free to go crazy with the veggies. I have no doubt that it will only make it better.

Hummus Sandwich with Carrot and Cilantro

Makes:  2 servings

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.
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 eat.

    You know, I don’t like hummus. I’ve only had the store-bought kind, and it was not so great. But I’m seeing hummus EVERYWHERE, and it just looks so great! I would definitely eat this and come back for more. Maybe I’ll give hummus another try

    I just made my almond milk, and the pulp is waiting for me to turn it into almond butter : ).

    I shall borrow your idea soon.

    I love it when you make something and then it turns out too good NOT to share! Such a great surprise!

    Blogging is definitely unpredictable in that sense! I love the sound of these sandwiches though and I’m so glad you shared…totally my kind of meal!

    I totally agree on unpredictable blogging. Sometimes I plan this elaborate recipe for my blog then the pictures end up looking dark and unappetizing. I love your photos!

    These look so fresh and pretty–well worth stopping to take a photo before digging in. šŸ˜‰

    Cathleen – Definitely try it again. It took my husband a while to come around to it too. And homemade is so much better than store bought. To me anyway. šŸ™‚

    Maria – Thanks!

    TasteHongKong – And that is coming up on my list – making my own almond milk and butter!

    Emily – I know! Makes the failures more tolerable. šŸ™‚

    Joanne – It’s always good to have something that keeps you on your toes. šŸ™‚

    Jenn – I have lots of photos like that myself. Thanks!

    Deb – Thanks! Definitely a sandwich for spring!
