- 2 slices of Grain-free Walnut Bread
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons hummus (use your favorite brand)
- Sliced vegetables: thinly sliced red onion, tomato, cucumber, 2 romaine lettuce leafs (or try spinach, arugula, or butter leaf)
- Protein of your choice: eggs (scrambled, sliced hard boiled, or poached), thinly sliced tempeh, thinly sliced tofu, chicken, etc.
- ½ avocado, sliced or mashed on the vegetables
- 1 handful of sprouts
- Sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Lightly toast the bread until desired firmness, then simply spread mustard, followed by hummus, layer sliced cucumber, then tomato, then the protein of your choice, then sliced avocado, followed by the lettuce and sprouts.
- Top with fresh black pepper and a pinch of sea salt.
- Enjoy immediately or place in an airtight glass container for lunch on the go!
My favorite ingredients: mustard, sprout seeds, and this hummus. For a full guide to make your own sprouts, click here. Get the full Grain-free Walnut Bread recipe or you can use the Nourishing Nut & Seed Bread for a more hearty sandwich, or the tastes like Rye Flaxseed Loaf. I find the Walnut Bread toasts the best.
