Looking for a healthier sandwich? Try a hummus sandwich. It has nutrition* galore, no cholesterol (unless you add cheese or turkey), lots of fiber and the versatility to pair with other ingredients for a different hummus sandwich every day of the month.

So enjoy a simple hummus and cucumber sandwich in pita, or become a creative sandwich artist with this list of sandwich ideas:

Choose Your Hummus

There are so many different flavors of hummus that you can choose from dozens, including artichoke, garlic, horseradish, jalapeño, olive, pesto, red pepper and sundried tomato.

Choose Your Bread

Go for a good-for-you bread: whole wheat bread/roll/pita or other whole grain bread (look for the ingredients: corn, flaxseed, hemp, oats, rye, spelt (farro) or whole wheat).

 

Add Some Of These 20+ Items To Your Hummus Sandwich

  • Almond slices, chopped pecans or other favorite nut
  • Apple or pear matchsticks
  • Avocado slices
  • Cheese: crumbled feta cheese, a slice of Jarlsberg or other Swiss cheese, shaved goat or sheep cheese
  • Dried fruit: blueberries, cherries, cranberries or chopped dried apricots
  • Cucumber slices
  • Grilled veggies (bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, zucchini)
  • Edamame
  • Herbs: chopped fresh basil, cilantro, dill, oregano, parsley, tarragon, thyme
  • Heat: chopped or pickled jalapeños or other chile, chipotle, fresh-ground peppercorns
  • Microgreens
  • Pickled vegetable slices (we like pickled carrots; see this easy recipe for any pickled vegetables or herbs, like pickled garlic)
  • Roasted red peppers (pimiento) from jars
  • Shredded carrots or red cabbage
  • Sliced or chopped olives
  • Spices (caraway seed, cumin, toasted sesame seeds, za’atar)
  • Sprouts
  • Sweet onion, diced
  • Tomato slices or chopped dried tomatoes
  • Turkey or ham slices
  • Other fresh veggies: lettuce, mixed leaf lettuces, sliced bell pepper, spinach leaves
