Pressed Hummus Sandwich

pressed hummus sandwich

I admit that the thought of hot hummus and cooked avocado is more than a bit off-putting, but you’re just going to have to trust me that they totally work here.  Indeed, this sandwich– this panino if you must– is delectable, and is perfect comfort food as we transition into busy, blustery autumn.
*I cooked this on a stovetop grill pan with a panini press, both preheated.  In the past I’ve made it in a George Foreman grill.  If all you have is a regular frying pan, that’s fine, too.  Just cook the sandwich for a couple minutes on each side and use a spatula to press it down.

2 slices of bread
a few avocado slices
a few roasted red pepper slices (jarred is fine)
handful of arugula
bit of olive oil

  • Preheat your grill/griddle/panini press/pan over medium heat.
  • Assemble your sandwich.  Spread hummus on each slice of bread, then add avocado, roasted red pepper, and arugula.  Close sandwich and brush each side with a little olive oil.
  • Cook for a few minutes, flipping if necessary, until bread is golden and maybe slightly charred and fillings are hot.

      Thank you, Kris! Yes, avocado in a stir-fry is super yummy. I also like it in certain pasta dishes. Basically, I’ll make any excuse to eat it! 😛
