Grilled Hummus Sandwich with Tomatoes, Leeks and Arugula


  • 1 small leek, thinly sliced
  • olive or grapeseed oil
  • 2 – 3 medium to large tomatoes, sliced
  • handful arugula
  • hummus  (use your favorite)
  • salt & fresh cracked pepper
  • 4 slices bread of choice


Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a medium pan over medium high heat, add sliced leek and cook, stirring occasionally until golden around the edges and tender, about 5 min. Set aside.  Heat your griddle over medium high. Lightly grease griddle if not using cast iron. Layer both inside slices of bread with a generous amount of hummus. Add a layer of sautéed onions, then sliced tomato, arugula and a sprinkle of salt & pepper. Add top slice of bread and gently press down. Drizzle or brush olive oil on the top. Place oiled side on griddle and cook for about 2 – 3 minutes, or until golden. Before flipping, drizzle or brush the top with olive oil. Flip and cook for another 2 -3 minutes until bread is golden once again and sandwich is warmed through.
