Cucumber, Tomato, Basil, chick peas with hummus SandwichesImage

This week I thought I would share a healthy snack idea. These veggie sandwiches are great because you can customize them however you want. Today I used cucumbers, tomatoes, chickpeas. basil, hummus and sprinkled some sea salt and pepper on top.. Hummus comes in many different flavors but I think homemade is by far the best and most flavorful, but you can purchase any kind from you local market.

I have found it to be very important in washing all your vegetables before cutting into them.

Cut up your cucumbers into 1/3 of an inch leaving part of the the skin on. Cut even amounts to fit into sandwiches.

Layer with a slice of tomato, chickpeas, hummus, then basil. To finish them off sprinkle with some sea  salt & pepper.

Hint.. I think these would be a great Superbowl snack to make or bring with you. They are easy to make and flavorful!!  The taste won’t disappoint you.

Here’s to eating healthy in 2012!!   Susan
