A pound of meat piled high on two slices of bread can be a bit much on a hot summer day (or any day really). Go light — and cook less — by prepping my fresh veggie sandwich, which is filled with healthy nutrients and comes together in minutes.
2 slices whole-grain bread (bakery-fresh recommended)
1 tablespoon hummus
2 slices tomato
1/2 small cucumber, thinly sliced lengthwise
1 slice low-fat cheese
1) Whole-Grain Bread
To set this sandwich apart from all the rest, start with freshly baked bread. Store-bought brands can be tasty and convenient, but when you’re only working with 5 ingredients, you want them to be the best. For this recipe, I stopped by the Sono Baking Company and picked up a loaf of whole-wheat sourdough — choose any whole grain variety for extra hunger-fighting fiber.
