Easy, Healthy Lunch: Hummus & Veggie Sandwich (Vegan)

This sandwich is a staple that is so easy to make and perfect to cool off with in the middle of a hot day. The hummus adds a bit of protein and creaminess to complement the crisp and cool veggies, while also giving you an opportunity to experiment with different flavors. Try using spinach- or garlic-flavored hummus to ramp up the antioxidants, or a spicy red pepper hummus for a flavorful kick. (Or try beet ginger hummus for extra zing!)
