Fresh from the Fields Vegetable Sandwich

This sandwich makes a perfect lunch or dinner for Meatless Mondays! Hummus is quickly becoming one of America's new favorite spreads. If time is short, use commercial hummus in place of preparing your own.

  • 1 cup drained chickpeas
  • 2 tablespoons lemons juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 teaspoon lemons zest
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ⅛ cup liquid from chickpeas
  • 2 small individual baguettes
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1 medium tomato cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 small zucchinis cut on the diagonal
  • 2 Kirby cucumbers sliced lengthwise
  • 2 small yellow bell pepper cut into rings
  • 4 thin slices of red onion
  • 4 slices Arla® Havarti Cheese

Instructions

1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, tahini, and lemon zest. Pulse until a smooth puree. In a steady stream, slowly add the olive oil while the food processor is on. Add just enough of the liquid to lighten the mixture into a spreadable paste. Season with salt and set aside. 2. Cut baguettes in half. Liberally spread both cut sides with the hummus. 3. Layer the arugula and then the tomato on the bottom of the rolls. Season the tomatoes with salt and cover them with basil. Continue layering the zucchini, cucumber, pepper rings, and onion, intermingling them with the Arla® Havarti sliced cheese. Replace the top to the rolls.
