I have one kid who ate nothing but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch for an entire year. At the end of the year, he announced he was sick of them, and that I should stop making them because he was never eating one again. As though it was my fault he spent a year sitting at the peanut table at school (did you know they do that? Have a special table at school for kids who bring nut-related items so kids with allergies can eat safely? Fascinating.)
So. All this to say — sometimes it’s nice to change things up at lunch a little bit.
This ham and hummus sandwich is just the thing.
You can use storebought hummus, but I use this recipe instead. Make some for sandwich spreads, make a little extra for dipping veggies and crackers, and you’ve got yourself a tasty, healthy lunch.
- Your bread of choice (I like a nice 7-grain wheat and nut bread, but you do you)
- Hummus spread
- Deli ham
- Lettuce, tomato, and whatever other fillings you like
Spread a generous amount of hummus on both pieces of bread. Add your ham and other fillings. Assemble your tasty sandwich and eat up!
