Engine 2 Open-Faced Sandwich With Hummus


  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid aminos
  • 1 slice whole grain bread (watch labels and look out for hidden oil!)
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 can no salt added garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 tomato


Place the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, and Bragg’s liquid aminos in a blender or processor and blend until it’s a thick paste. Then, add the water (or vegetable broth) until the blade spins easily and it’s a nice creamy consistency.

Toast the bread. Layer the hummus, mustard, spinach, tomato and cucumber slices on top of the bread and enjoy!
