Vegan Sandwich With Hummus, Avocado, and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

I am always looking for quick and easy sandwich ideas for lunch at home or on the go. As I’ve previously mentioned, my oldest daughter is a vegetarian, so I like to cater to her preferences when planning our meals.

We can usually substitute tofu for meat on her plate when preparing lunch or dinner, but I always like it when I can find a meal that everyone likes and can eat.

Vegan Sandwich With Hummus, Avocado, and Sun Dried Tomatoes Recipe |

All of my kids are crazy for hummus. They eat it on just about everything, from crackers to homemade pita to vegetable crudités. Hummus makes a great spread on wraps and toast. Add a few veggies and you have a delicious and filling sandwich.

Try our recipe for pumpkin hummus, for something a little different.

  1. These are some of my favorite ingredients, and I can’t wait to try this out. I don’t specifically look for vegetarian recipes, since I eat meat, but I love hummus, and can’t wait to try making it myself. Avocados are always plentiful here in Texas, so I became a huge fan of them as soon as I arrived here, and I’m looking forward to adding in the sun dried tomatoes, and tasting this delightful combination.

  2. I use these and other ingredients for wraps and sandwiches. Most people wouldn’t even realize this was vegan which shows it’s possible to have great vegan food. I add roasted peppers to mine with hummus and if you roast the avocado, it gives it a nice texture in a wrap. A friend introduced me to roasted avocado and it’s great as it adds flavor to it and you can also mash it up as a dip.

  3. This has become a staple in my household. It is what I consider to be my “fast food.” It is nutritious and a great go to dinner for when one does not have time to cook or are totally exhausted. I can eat my weight in these wraps.

  4. I love hummus too! This is a quick sandwich packed with flavor. The butteryness of the avocado and the creaminess of the hummus will be delicious. I remember the post on this site when different hummus recipes were given, and one of them used sun-dried tomatoes. This is a nice offshoot of that. Great sandwich!

  5. I’m wondering since you said that you make these for your whole family, how many does it take to fill up everyone? While I often enjoy the taste of vegan and vegetarian recipes, I find myself hungry when I don’t eat a meal with meat.

    • Usually 1 – 1 1/2 sandwiches per person is plenty. I will also serve a leafy salad, and everyone seems very satisfied.

      • I was thinking of adding a salad to it! I think I will definitely try this. It seems like a perfect lunch to throw together quickly and take as my lung to work. Plus it’s healthy which never hurts!

  6. I’m totally in love with hummus! Adding the avocado and sun dried tomatoes is a really great idea to create a light yet yummy sandwich. It would be really nice to have homemade hummus with this but I’ve yet to find a really good recipe. I can totally imagine this being served in a homey picnic with the family. Perfect summer food!

  7. Mmm hummus, I haven’t made any in ages. I’ve never tried it with avocado either, I bet they’re delicious together. Thanks for the idea, I’ll definitely have to try it out!

  8. These look very yummy! I want to make these for my vegitarian girlfriend. I’ve been making very vegan meals for quite a while now as we’re living together. This looks yummy and super easy to make! Thank you for sharing this!

  9. Oh, wow, that looks delicious AND healthy AND amazingly easy to make! I’m going to have to try it! I haven’t really tried using hummus in my kitchen before (I’ve had it in restaurants and liked it, but never tried making it or buying it for use at home), but if these sandwiches turn out as delicious as they look and sound, it may become a regular ingredient of mine…

  10. That’s it? That looks SUPER easy! Wow I am going to whip this one up for lunch I really like the look.
    I might add a little spice to it (Maybe some dried chili’s.)

  11. I’m new to hummus (I used to dislike it, but as I became vegetarian, I gave it a second try and found out I loved it now), and so far I really liked to just dip my bread in it and have it to thinly sliced cucumbers. Did not even occur to me to make a delicious sandwich out of it — and with avocado! Yumm!

    Quick question: you say on the go,so it sounds like these would be also for going to school etc. How long would the avocado “keep” without darkening in a sandwich? I usually eat it so fast I would not have time to find out, but maybe you can clear this up for me!

  12. I’ve always seen hummus in the store but I had never thought to try it out for myself even though I always told myself to eat more healthy things. It took my father to buy some and stick it in my fridge one day and with me being curious, I decided to take a little nibble.

    I couldn’t believe how good it was, especially since the one I had was basil and tomato flavored. I’m currently using it with heated flavored wraps (cheese is my favorite) with lettuce and thin slices of honey turkey for my lunch when I go to work. It’s healthy and more importantly, it doesn’t hurt my wallet!

  13. I love avacado and I love hummus. Even though the two ingredients together don’t exactly compliment each other they still make a delicious treat. On this sandwich I like to add a sprinkle of olive oil or melt on it swiss cheese.

  14. Now that I found this recipe, it’s by far my favorite so far, and with so little ingredients! You had me at hummus! LOL I think I can actually pull off making it right now. I always have hummus in the house. I discovered it in my first year at college and instantly fell in love. We have been inseparable ever since. I always have it with crackers, or pita bread cut into triangles and toasted on a pan, but I’ve never tried it like this before. My mouth is watering! Can’t wait!

  15. This is a really interesting recipe. I’m always on a look out for quick, healthy meals and this dish is the perfect fit. I truly appreciate the versatility of the hummus. I’ve always thought that they;re simply great as dips. Now this is a smart way of using any leftover hummus. Thanks for posting!

  16. This looks delicious and contains some of my favorite ingredients too! I’d love to see a post about hummus recipes, I’ve had some success making my own!

    I’ve made bagel sandwiches really similar to this before and they are SO good! Very filling and packed with nutrition.

  17. Well I am not a vegan, but it is dishes like this that really make me think that I could do it for a little longer than I might think. I went vegetarian for about a week in college, and I am glad I did because I learned a lot about substitutes, and this sounds like a good one for that too. I love avocados, and I say it would be a good substitute for some meat and good for the summer time too. Nice and light. I will give this one a shot, thanks for sharing.
