Hi there pals!

Today we are throwing it back to my plant based days and the sandwich I enjoyed regularly.

If you're new to this space, Hi!

I was fully plant based for almost two years as I worked on healing my body from a long list of chronic illnesses. HERE is my healing journey if you're interested in taking a look back.

This is a recipe that I prepped almost weekly to have in the fridge for a quick and satiating meal.

I would bulk prep the carrots, cucumber, hummus and sun-dried tomato spread for easy assembly.

It was also great for on-the-go meals.

I know what you're thinking, "who wants a veggie sandwich".

But seriously, this guy rocks. The pesto spread really seals the deal here.

& if you want some protein, adding a thinly seared chicken breast would be divine.

I highly recommend you try it both ways!

*for one sandwich

  • 2 slices sourdough bread

  • 1 tablespoon hummus

  • 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato pesto

  • 1/2 large carrot, grated

  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced

  • 1/4 cup sprouts

  • 2 leafs of lettuce


  1. Pre prep the hummus and sun-dried tomato pesto spread.

  2. Peel and grate the carrots and slice the cucumber.

  3. Spread hummus on one piece of bread and the sun-dried tomato pesto spread on the other piece. Add carrots, sprouts, cucumber and lettuce.

  4. Combine the sandwich and slice to enjoy!


  • You're not just prepping the hummus and sun-dried tomato pesto for the sandwich, they can both be used for so many other things.

  • Prepping the carrots and cucumber in a glass jar makes it so easy for easy meal assembly.

  • If you want to add some protein, a thinly sliced pan seared chicken breast accompanies these flavors well.

  • Adding a helping of basil pesto never hurt anybody either.

Hope you all are having a happy day!

As always, feel free to reach out whenever.
