Indulge in the goodness of a toasted sandwich with chickpea hummus spread, and reap the health benefits that come along with it:

Nutrient-Rich Chickpeas

The base of the hummus spread is made from soft-cooked chickpeas, which are loaded with essential nutrients. Chickpeas are a great source of plant-based protein, fibre, and important minerals like iron and zinc. Including chickpeas in your diet can support healthy digestion, promote satiety, and contribute to overall heart health.

Lemon Juice for a Boost of Vitamin C

The addition of lemon juice not only adds a tangy flavour but also provides a dose of vitamin C. Vitamin C is known for its immune-boosting properties and its role in collagen formation, which supports healthy skin, bones, and blood vessels. Enjoying a toasted sandwich with chickpea hummus spread can be a tasty way to sneak in some extra vitamin C.

Healthier Alternative to Vegan Cheese

While plant-based cheeses can be tasty, opting for homemade chickpea hummus spread as an alternative can offer a healthier choice. Homemade hummus is typically made with nutritious ingredients like cumin and tahini, providing healthy fats and a rich flavour profile. By choosing this option, you can avoid highly processed vegan cheeses that may contain additives and excessive amounts of sodium.

Savour the delicious taste of a toasted sandwich with chickpea hummus spread, knowing you’re nourishing your body with plant-based protein, fibre, essential nutrients, and wholesome flavours. Enjoy a healthier twist on a classic sandwich and feel good about your meal choices!

A ‘Cheese’ sandwich made from hummus - really?
Well … no plant-based cheese is the same as dairy cheese. But hummus with cumin instead of garlic, has a lovely, subtle cheesy flavour when cooked between wholegrain bread.
It’s a staple at our house and is a much healthier food than highly processed vegan cheese. If you need to make a batch first, the recipe is below. It won’t take long if you use canned chickpeas.
Course Main Course

Ingredients
  

  • 1 can soft-cooked checkpeas approx 1½ cups
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • salt to taste optional
  • ground cumin to taste approx ½ - ¾ tsp
  • 1 tbsp tahini unhulled has the best flavour

Instructions
 

The spread

  • Drain & rinse the chickpeas. Juice some lemon to make a ¼ cup.
  • Whizz chickpeas, lemon juice, salt and cumin in a food processor until the mixture is smooth and thick.
  • Add the tahini and blend again.

Now, the sandwich

  • Spread x2 slices of wholegrain bread with cumin hummus. Add sliced fresh tomato if you fancy. Sandwich together and toast both sides in a non-stick pan or sandwich maker. No need to use oil or margarine; you’ll have a trimmer waist, a better taste, better health, and your pan or sandwich maker will be easier to clean. Ta da!
