Spicy Grilled Veggie Hummus Sandwiches

This first version of this hummus sandwich with spicy grilled veggies happened by accident.

It was a hectic Monday, and I was attempting to get everything ready before I dashed out the door on my morning commute.

Yes, I realize that I should be making lunch the night before instead procrastinating until the next day when I am scrambling to get going. 

I prefer bringing lunch to save time during busy workdays. Most of the time when midday hits, I am eating in a meeting. Always multi-tasking! 

But really the best part of bringing a homemade lunch is that it’s the healthiest option. And it’s a great way to save money! Dining out everyday is expensive. 

Just as I was about to give up and make a PBJ because I was running out of time to get to the train, I spotted a leftover vegetable salad in the fridge.

I toasted 2 slices of whole-wheat bread and slathered them both with hummus.

Spicy Grilled Veggie Hummus Sandwich: The Ingredients

Hummus is my absolute favorite sandwich spread. I’m not a fan of mayo or mustard. It’s amazing how many different flavors hummus comes in.

Then I stacked grilled vegetables on the hummus. The sandwich couldn’t have been any simpler.

It kept me full the rest of the afternoon.

When I recreated this spicy grilled veggie hummus sandwich, I sprinkled the veggies with a mix of cumin and chili powder before they hit the grill.

I loved the extra kick so much that the next time I brought it to work, I couldn’t last till noon before I took a few bites of my sandwich.

Grilled vegetables are fantastic leftovers to have around. They come in handy for more than just sandwiches.

I consider them a pantry staple. In the colder months, I always keep roasted vegetables on hand.

They can become the feature ingredients in a grain bowl or mixed into a bowl of salad greens.
