This plant-forward sandwich is so-named for its abundance of ingredients, some of which used to be available only in health food stores. The whole-grain bread, tahini dressing, hummus, avocados and thick-cut fresh vegetables add up to a sandwich that would satisfy vegetarians and meat eaters alike.


24 slices multigrain or gluten-free bread

3 cups hummus

3 cups arugula

48 slices tomato, cut ¼-in. thick

48 slices cucumber, cut 1/8-in. thick

24 slices red bell pepper, cut ¼-in. wide

¾ cup tahini dressing

4 fresh avocados, peeled, seeded and cut into thirds


1. On each of 12 bread slices, spread ¼ cup hummus.

2. Top each with ¼ cup arugula, 4 tomato slices, 4 cucumber slices, 2 red pepper strips and 1 tablespoon tahini dressing. Arrange 1/3 an avocado on top of each; cover with remaining bread slice.

3. To serve, cut in half.
