Hummus Veggie Pita

For the last few weeks, I have been on a lactose-free diet (doctor’s orders). This pita sandwich has become my lunch staple. Even if I eat at my desk, I pull out my ingredients and make my lunch in front of my computer. I get giggles from my co-workers, but boy is it worth it! This is delicious! Seriously, who needs cheese? (Well, I do…. but I can’t admit that right now!)

Hummus Veggie Pita

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole-wheat pita or flatbread
  • 3 Tablespoons Hummus (my recipe)
  • 6 slices cucumber
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/8 cup alfalfa sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower seeds (optional)

Directions:

  1. Spread hummus over flatbread so it covers it like pizza sauce.
  2. Lay cucumbers in 2 rows of 3.
  3. Top one side with shredded carrots (store-bought shredded or shredded in a food processor)
  4. Top one side with sprouts.
  5. Add sunflower seeds if desired.
  6. Top with mayonnaise if desired.

*Note: You really don’t need the mayonnaise on this sandwich, but honestly, I have had it both ways, and the mayonnaise adds the perfect kick. It’s a nice compliment to the hummus and vegetables.
