“I put this together one night after work. I'm trying a new thing where I only eat meat one meal a day, and I'd already eaten chicken for lunch. When I got home from work my dad had made steak, so instead I used the grilled zucchini side dish and made a sandwich. The zucchini has the texture of a meat like sliced turkey or ham, so it feels like you're not stuck with a pile of veggies between bread. The hummus is a nice protien to keep your meal well rounded. The cook time is for the zucchini”
1 sandwich

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 zucchini, sliced seasoned, and grilled
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 -2 tablespoon hot pepper hummus (I used Sonny & Joes)
  • sliced tomatoes
  • lettuce
  • mustard


  1. You can toast the bread, but I didn't. Spread the hummus on one slice of the bread and the mustard on the other slice.
  2. Layer the grilled zucchini, tomato slices, and lettuce between the bread.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste, but I think the hummus and mustard gives it a great flavor.
