This is a fun sandwich that I came up with on a whim yesterday. The condiments are not mayo, not mustard, not ketchup… just hummus. I served it open-faced on a piece of toasted cracked wheat bread, slathered with hummus, some lettuce, and sliced tomatoes. Not sure what I expected, but it was really yummy. Everyone gave it two thumbs up. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    After the bottom begins to brown (3 – 4 minutes), flip, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, and cook an additional 3 – 4 minutes. Note: I like mine a bit on the rare side, so I cut those times in half.

    Toast the bread, and slather with 2 tablespoons of the hummus. Then toss the tomatoes with the remaining hummus. Note: You might need a bit more hummus, but that is okay because hummus is a good thing. Place the lettuce on the toast, add the burger, and top with the hummus-tossed tomatoes. Enjoy.
