I have a confession to make. Cue the Foo Fighters…

I do not like avocado. I may have actually talked about this already – I’m not sure. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I talk a lot, even here, and some of my “shtufff” gets lost in the babble. But since this is a food blog and we are food lovers together, I thought I should talk about it one more time.

I can eat it in sushi as long as I don’t know it’s there. Kind of like sardines – I can eat them in salad dressings, as long as I can’t see them. I once ate an entire Jimmy John’s sub before I realized that it was someone else’s vegetarian sub, full of avocado, and not my turkey sub. Once I realized it was full of avocado, I was like ewwwww. But while I was eating it, I thought it was pretty yummy. Who does that?

This crazy person.

So as I watched this crazy avocado toast craze that I keep seeing on the blogosphere, I got all sad because I can’t get involved. No way am I going to eat avocado toast if I can see the avocado all squishy and mushy-like on the bread.

My solution is hummus toast. Equally mushy and squishy but for some reason I am not squeamish about it.

Go figure.

Hummus and Veggie Sammie

This sandwich is easy to make and perfect for lunch, or even dinner on a meatless Monday if you cram enough veggies on it. Start with your favorite hummus. You can go the store-bought route of course, but I much prefer to make my own at home. Store bought hummus is often packed with unnecessary preservatives and 10 letter words I don’t know how to pronounce. It’s so very easy to make at home that I find there is no excuse to buy it at the store.

Of course I have a favorite hummus recipe, and no, it is not one of my own. Sometimes, I am under the opinion that if it’s not broke don’t fix it and that is how I feel about this delicious hummus recipe.  I usually use canned beans anyway and just make sure to rinse them well and make sure that the skins are not still attached.

Once you have picked your hummus, gather a crusty and sturdy piece of bread and slather on a hearty helping of it. Then top that with sprouts or microgreens – I like this order so that they stick to the hummus instead of falling off. Add the veggies on top of that.  I like cucumber, bell pepper, onion and tomato but you could also add mushrooms, lettuce, you name it. Even avocado (ew.)

I only got into avocados a few years ago -- before that, I had that same "ewww" reaction. But I do like hummus on toast, and this looks like the perfect simple weekday lunch.

I love avocado but I thought I hated it for the longest time, I think it's the mushyness! I totally get what you mean though, like mushrooms I violently hate and will pick them out of everything - but then I recently tried some and I was like "oh these are okay" but I still pick them out of my food and refuse to eat them haha! This hummus sandwich is definitely a yummy alternative though, avocado lover or not!
