A light and healthy lunch or snack or brunch. Avocados stuffed with a spicy salad and chickpea hummus. Super easy and fast to prepare and definitely worth the change to the overdone “avocado and hummus” sandwich.

I experimented a lot with hummus, but the best basic recipe I made was this one. You can easily make loads of variations with this basic recipe. Use beans instead of chickpeas, add roasted onions, chilli, roasted vegetables, chopped fresh herbs etc.

Nice changes to the “normal” hummus – this spicy hot vegetable hummus can persuade with roasted zucchini, roasted red pepper and chilli. Lovely to home baked bread or buns, great as a dip for veggie sticks, yummy in a sandwich.

Because we are thinking of what our guests at The Vegan Cypress can take as packed lunch for their excursions in the Umbrian landscape – a good vegan sandwich idea is always welcome. These pita pockets with marinated Italian vegetables and cannellini bean hummus are just the perfect choice for a summery day under Italian’s sun.
