Homemade Hummus Sandwich

Hummus sandwiches are one of our favorites. When the hummus is homemade and the bread is fresh it's even better. This chick pea dip makes a healthy stuffing for pita or lavash bread. At approximately $1.25 per sandwich and under 500 calories this makes homemade hummus for lunch a no brainer.

    I add hummus to all my sandwiches now instead of Mayo. This sandwich was crunch with the onion and lettuce – it’s must try!
