Equipment

  • Toaster

Ingredients

  • 2 Slices Whole Grain Bread
  • 1 TBSP Hummus
  • 2 TBSP Feta Cheese Crumbles (low fat or fat free if possible)
  • 2 Lettuce
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Red Beefsteak Tomato
  • 1 TBSP Pimiento Peppers

Instructions

  • Wash all produce thoroughly.
  • Slice tomatoes in ½” rounds. Slice cucumbers in thin slices.
  • Lightly mash feta and hummus together in a small bowl.
  • Toast the bread to preference, or leave un-toasted. Place bread on a plate or cutting board.
  • Spread the feta and hummus mixture on one piece of bread. Layer a large piece of butter lettuce. Add tomato slices, cucumbers, and pimiento peppers in that order. (Optional - layer it up however you like!)
  • Place large piece of butter lettuce on top and seal the sandwich shut.
  • Slice in half or eat as is.
  • For storage: Keep in fridge tightly wrapped for up to 3 days.

Notes

Keep the sandwich refrigerated and wrap tightly with either aluminum foil, plastic wrap or in an airtight sandwich bag/container. I don’t recommend freezing this sandwich as lettuce and tomatoes don’t freeze well.
Whole Grain Bread - Substitute for your favorite bread like ciabatta or sourdough bread.
Hummus - buy whatever brand or flavor is your favorite!
Feta Cheese- substitute for vegan feta or omit
Red Beefsteak Tomato -  Substitute for heirloom tomatoes or omit.
Cucumber - use an English or Hothouse cucumber. Avoid Persian cucumbers as I find they fall out between the sandwich slices! Or omit.
Lettuce - Substitute for greens of choice, with a preference for larger leafy greens like kale.
Pimientos Peppers - While the traditional Panera Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich uses Peppadew piquant peppers, I used pimientos peppers. You can substitute for jarred roasted red pepper or omit completely. These peppers add a slight sweetness.
