Quick and Easy Lunch: Pita with Hummus, Spinach and Basil

I’m addicted to hummus with veggies and pita.  I’ve eaten it nearly everyday for the past 6 months for lunch.  This is for three reasons: it’s yummy, it’s healthy, it’s easy.  I won’t say I’m bored with it, but I am looking for a bit of variety, and I am came up with this ‘sandwich’.

The ‘sandwich’

What you’ll need:

  • Pita, or flatbread
  • Hummus (see how to make your own on the next page)
  • Baby spinach, approximately 1 cup
  • Fresh basil, about 3-5 large leaves
  • Veggies of your choice (I like red peppers)
  • Olive oil, optional
  • Vinegar, optional

Slather a thick layer of hummus onto the pita bread or flatbread, top with the spinach, basil and some veggies. I like to make a salad first by mixing a bit of olive oil and vinegar with the veggies, then putting it on top of the hummus covered bread.

About the Author

I spent the last five years earning my PhD in Engineering. I enjoy all types of science and writing, so I am trying out a new career path in science publication and communication. Recently, I have moved to Oxford, England. As an environmentally-conscious person, Oxford is a great place to live...notably there is no car required. I love to talk about vegan cooking, plant-based diets and the benefits of such, so just ask if you are interested. I do ballet for fun and love kitties.
