These extraordinary sandwiches are bursting with Mediterranean flavor.

Our greek hummus sandwich is an extraordinary sandwich that is layered with hummus and lots of crunchy vegetables.

You’ll love these gorgeous, Greek-inspired Mediterranean sandwiches! They’re healthy, delicious, and vegetarian-friendly. I would even dare to say they’re better than any meat sandwich alternative! From the hummus to the feta cheese, banana peppers, kalamata olives, and fresh veggies — this Greek hummus sandwich is packed full of flavor. And all those ingredients are layered between whole grain bread, which has more fiber and fewer calories than white bread. Anyway, we believe you’ve just found your new favorite, go-to lunch!

A note on bread: To optimize your nutrition, make sure whole wheat flour is the first ingredient listed when you buy your bread. Or, you can make your own whole wheat bread to ensure there are no added sugars or preservatives.

What Kind of Hummus to Use

This si the perfect spring or summertime sandwich for enjoying outdoors or at the office!

Store-bought hummus is totally fine for this recipe. I’ve made this sandwich dozens of times with store-bought hummus. You can even go with flavored hummus if you want to go wild! My personal favorites are jalapeno, roasted red pepper, sun-dried tomato, and caramelized onion. 

However, it’s also really easy to whip up your own batch of hummus that’s just as creamy and smooth as the store-bought brands. Once you see how easy it is, you might not go back to supermarket hummus! Here is an easy recipe to follow:

Ingredients

  • Tahini or chickpea purée
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Ground cumin and salt
  • Olive oil

Once you have those ingredients, all you have to do is throw them in a food processor or blender. Just make sure to blend the tahini and lemon juice first for about a minute, before you add the other ingredients. Hint: by mixing in a little cold water at the end, you will get fluffier, whipped hummus.

How to Eat This Greek Hummus Sandwich

Our nutrient-dense sandwich is an easy and scrumptious way to get the kids to eat their veggies.

Ideally, you want to eat this Greek hummus sandwich right after you make it. Most of the ingredients are cold, which is what makes it so refreshing. I especially like to make them in the spring and summertime, when I have guests over. They make an excellent poolside snack because they are full of light and fresh ingredients, and pretty much accommodate everyone’s diet. You’ll just want to make sure no one has a sesame seed allergy, which is the most common allergen in hummus.

If you do want to bring these Greek hummus sandwiches somewhere, I recommend keeping them in a cooler. They’re great to bring on road trips, to the beach, or even to the kids’ soccer games, because those are the times I’m usually bringing the cooler with me anyway. That said, they’re an excellent option for your weekday lunch, too (just be sure to add an ice pack to your lunch box or throw your brown sack lunch in the refrigerator at the office).

What to Serve Them With

This veggie-packed sandwich makes every other sandwich look super-boring.

I like to go with other summertime foods to accompany this sandwich, such as fresh lime and basil fruit salad or a potato salad. Or, if you want something crispy and healthy, you can always go with some baked banana chips or baked apple chips

Whatever you choose to serve them with, our Greek hummus sandwich is sure to be the star of the show! Be sure to let us know what you thought of them in the comment section, below.
