You won't miss the mayo or cheese with this tasty recipe! Tahini in hummus seems to be one of those love-it or hate-it things. It can be omitted if you don't like tahini, but I don't think the hummus tastes as good without it. The cayenne can also be omitted if you don't like the spiciness. Since there's no dairy and no mayo in this sandwich, you don't have to worry as much about refrigerating it immediately (though there probably won't be any leftovers!) So good and so filling. An excellent way to get more protein in your diet.
