I’m obsessed with sundried tomatoes because it takes any dish to the next level be it pasta, chicken, rice, or even a simple sandwich like this one.

I wanted to come up with a vegan summer sandwich recipe that’s easy to put together. I started recipe testing with hummus and chutney, and then threw in sun-dried tomatoes, and a bunch of veggies until I felt, okay, this is it!

What is a Vegan Hummus Sandwich with Sun-Dried Tomatoes?

Hummus Sandwich is an easy lunch made on whole-grain bread and is completely vegan. Trust me, you don’t need white or sourdough bread because this sandwich is the ultimate sandwich and packed with flavor.

I combined the flavors from India, Italy, and the Mediterranean all into one mouthwatering sandwich using cilantro chutney, sun-dried tomatoes, and hummus respectively.

TIP: Make sure to use sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil. You can easily find sun-dried tomatoes in oil at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.

To begin with toast two slices of bread. Spread hummus on one side and mashed avocado on the other side of the bread. Then add veggies such as baby spinach, onions, tomatoes, jalapenos for spice, and sun-dried tomatoes. Additionally, we will flavor the sandwich with cilantro chutney.

Ingredients

Ingredients for Hummus Sandwich.
  • Whole-Grain Bread: I love Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grain – it’s the best bread – so good and healthy. You can get a 2-pack at Costco for $8, else check out Whole Foods.
  • Avocado: Mash the avocado and season with garlic powder, salt, black pepper, lemon juice, and chopped green chilies.
  • Lemon Juice: You’ll need freshly squeezed lemon juice for the avocado. Lime juice also works.
  • Green Chilies: You’ll need green chilies for the mashed avocado. You may also use serrano peppers.
  • Spices: Garlic Powder, Salt, and black pepper.
  • Fresh Veggies: Fresh Baby Spinach, Cucumbers, Tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes), Red Onions, and Jalapenos.
  • Sun-Dried Tomatoes: You need to use good quality sun-dried tomatoes that are made in olive oil. Both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods sell versions made in olive oil, or check another grocery store.
  • Hummus: Store-bought hummus works great. I use Costco’s brand which is organic creamy hummus. Of course, you can always use homemade hummus.
  • Cilantro Chutney: Here is my recipe for cilantro chutney which is super easy to make and so delicious.

Substitutions

  • Leafy Greens – You may substitute chopped kale or arugula for spinach.
  • Cilantro Chutney – Feel free to use Mint Chutney or Red Garlic Chutney.
  • Regular Hummus – You may use Garlic Hummus or Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus.
  • Don’t Like A Veggie – skip it, however, this will alter the flavor of the sandwich.
