Hummus & Avocado Open-Faced Sandwich


Don't you just love it when lunch only takes 5 minutes to make?  Even better when it's healthy, and fills you up without weighing you down.  To me this is far tastier than a processed meat turkey sandwich on gluten containing wheat bread.  It's loaded with fiber, protein, and healthy fats.  Perfect alone as a light lunch, or with a bowl of vegetable soup. 

     1 slice Gluten Free bread  (steer clear of the gluten free loaves that are made up of potato and tapioca starch, they are not much better for you than white bread.  The ancient grains bread I use contains quinoa, amaranth, sesame seeds, and millet, just to name a few ingredients. )
     2 Tbsp. hummus (I used sun-dried tomato flavor, roasted garlic is really good with this sandwich, too)
     2 Tbsp. avocado
     Micro-greens (optional)
     Sea Salt
     Cayenne Pepper

*Optional:  For an extra kick, stone ground mustard

1.  Toast the bread. 
2.  If using mustard, spread a thin layer on.
3.  Top with hummus and spread evenly.
4.  Smash the avocado with a fork, season with a tiny bit of sea salt, turmeric, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.  Drop little dollops all over the sandwich, and evenly spread.  Top with micro-greens, and a squeeze of lemon, if desired.
