oh my sandwich

Blueberry Scottish oats to start the day off right.

Time to break out the chickpea flour!  I’ve seen a lot of recipes for hummus made with chickpea flour and figured it would probably be super creamy and easy to make.

Don’t worry, it’s supposed to look like lumpy at this stage.

It ends up looking like this.

Chickpea Flour Hummus

I used the Bob’s Red Mill recipe, changing just a few things like all water, instead of water + veggie broth.

I topped mine with hot sauce and toasted cumin seeds.

The smoothest hummus this girl has ever dipped a carrot in.  I used to hate hummus!

It took all my energy of the day to make the hummus and the following sandwich.  This could be, probably is, one of my top 5 favorite sandwiches ever.  This is a twist on grilled cheese.  It’s nothing like grilled cheese at all.  I would say it’s better.

I’m also thinking this hummus will be a great sub when  making egg salad, which is something I love and never make.  I’m not a fan of mayo, but will eat a small amount of it in egg salad.

I love eggs.  Have you figured that out yet?

I held the sandwich, looking at it, excited for every single next bite.  The millet bread is small, so this was gone in no time.
