My Favorite Veggie Sandwich

Sweet Potato Hummus Veggie Sandwich -- my go-to sandwich recipe!

As promised in my last post, I now give you pretty pictures of a sandwich. Because dammit I can’t cry writing every post I put up.

Any time I make a batch of my sweet potato hummus, it’s a guarantee I’ll eat this sandwich for lunch every day until it’s gone. I’m currently obsessed with Whole Foods’ organic quinoa flax bread (pictured), but you could make this as a wrap or with any other bread your little heart desires. If you don’t want to make a batch of sweet potato hummus, just use regular store-bought hummus–still delicious! Sweet Potato Hummus Veggie Sandwich -- my go-to sandwich recipe!

Hope you all have a fun weekend ahead of you! If you’re in Boston, Fitbit Local is having their launch event tomorrow morning by SOWA. Free bootcamp class and yoga–you just need to RSVP here. I’m so excited to be able to workout again without worrying about keeping my legs fresh for a weekly long run! I was definitely doing fitness classes all throughout my training, but as the long runs got to be 15+ miles, I had to cut back a little and strategize the timing of them so my legs wouldn’t be fried. I did Btone this morning for the first time in a couple weeks and it was glorious. GLORIOUS.

  4. So, my comment has nothing to do with your sandwich. I rarely comment, and when I do, it’s never negative, but I just can’t let go of something. I read your post about your “breakdown” a few days ago, and am still outraged that you discussed your brother’s mental illness. I also don’t buy the story of doing so at that time to shine a light on mental illness – it was clearly a thinly veiled tactic to garner sympathy in order to reach your fund-raising goal. Of course, his mental illness affects you and I understand your need to talk about it – do so with your friends and family, NOT on social media. Or do so in ways that can truly advance the issues, not in a fitness blog. You just don’t have the right to do so, especially when you know your brother would be outraged and you clearly don’t have his consent. I do hope that your brother has another sibling who is more compassionate and sensitive.

    • Hi Mona. Maybe I made a bad judgement call in the level of specificity I used–“a family member” could have been the better choice of words. I’ve thought about that and understand your opinion. Perhaps I’ll even edit the post that way. But as you know nothing about the situation, you have no right to accuse me of callousness.

      I felt extremely passionate about the cause for which I was fundraising when I realized how connected it was to my personal experience–and in some way, to everyone’s experience. We all can relate to needing support, and that shared human experience is why ALL charitable causes matter. I’m happy I could help an amazing organization that provides support where it is needed and lacking. And I wanted readers to know WHY I care and why they should care, too.

      You’re accusing me of calculated phoniness, but when I wrote that blog post, opening up felt like the most authentic thing I could do in conveying that bigger picture of connectedness I’d finally understood. It’s such a big part of my life and who I am as a person.

      Again, I very well could have made a bad judgment call in specifically identifying my family member. I do not disagree with you on that and respect your opinion. It’s the attack on my character and assumption of ill intentions that is unwarranted. I hope one day mental illness isn’t so stigmatized. Maybe then you wouldn’t see talking about it as some sort of betrayal.

  5. This would be awesome on gluten free paleo bread! Sweet potato hummus, perfect! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love the sandwich. I actually have all the ingredients on hand minus the sprouts. Do you make your own sprouts? They are so easy to make and taste so much better than the ones from the store.

  7. This looks amazing! I love avacado toast, but never thought to try it with hummus. I can’t wait to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing!

  8. This hummus is my go-to every.single.week. I can eat it by the gallon. Thanks for such a great, easy to make and *especially delicious* recipe, Nicole!
