These were definitely a hit! People often ask me what goes on the inside of vegan sandwiches, because sandwiches are of course merited by the type and quality of meat and cheese they have (not).  Here’s a great example! Other sandwiches you can make are vegan versions of classics like the BLT, grilled cheese, even sloppy joes.  At school I would like to toast hummus and grilled veggies between whole wheat bread, too.

 

The only change I made to the recipe was using whole wheat bread instead (because it’s better for you and why not?).  Speaking to the recipe, the green pureed mixture has the same look and consistency of guac, but is obviously not.  The flavor is mildly tangy and very pleasant — you can definitely taste the dill, lemon and cucumber without them being overpowering.

 

Aren’t these just the cutest? I’ve decided to only eat tea-sized from now on.  Enjoy!
