I’ve taught you how to make smooth, creamy hummus.
Now I’m going to tell you about a wonderful way to eat it…break away from the pita chips and carrot dippers. This is much better.
It’s so good I ate it two days in a row for lunch and would have had it for a third day if I didn’t need the protein from peanut butter in preparation for a training run.
(Wow. That’s a long sentence. Not.Editing.It.)
Grab the following:
- Two pieces of bread
- Your favorite cheese (I used provolone)
- Fresh spinach
Then – since you want to be healthy – instead of grilling this, you’re going to follow Shannah’s faux-grilling process (carefully developed when I was a latch-key kid and wasn’t allowed to make a real grilled cheese sandwich while I was alone at home after school).
- Toast the bread
- Place cheese on one piece of toasted bread
- Spread hummus on top of cheese
- Add spinach
- Top with second piece of toasted bread
- Microwave for 20 seconds
You know, this would probably be good with pesto…sounds like I’ve got lunch planned for at least two days next week.
