    Hoff's Cucumber Hummus Sandwich

    Hoff's Cucumber Hummus Sandwich
    Yields: 1 Sandwich
    meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, soy-free


    • Gluten-free Bread
    • Cucumber Slices
    • Sliced Red Onion
    • Pickle Slices
    • Hummus

    1. Spread Hummus on two pieces of Bread
    2. On one slice place Cucumber, Onion & Pickles
    3. Close sandwich & enjoy!

    Hoff Thoughts: I recently tried this sandwich out on a "glamping" trip and it was awesome!  Since going gluten-free, my beloved Subway has been off limits.  This sandwich helped to bring a little of that magic back into my life. I just kept everything in separate containers until eating was required, a container of sliced Cucumber, another with sliced Onion, a jar of Pickle Slices (dry before applying to avoid soggy bread) a small container of oil-free Hummus and a loaf of Schar Artisan Baker Multigrain Bread.
