Earlier this week, I made a batch of Ina Garten’s wonderful tuna salad in anticipation of assembling her Tuna and Hummus Sandwiches — one of her few healthy recipes. Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve since made some hummus (partially Ina’s recipe, partially my own), and today, I was able to finally move forward with my lofty ambitious sandwich plans.

First we start with the tuna salad I had previously made. HOW EASY IS THAT?
Next I reveal my GOOD hummus. It’s actually a very strong batch (both in terms of garlic power and general awesomeness).
I drizzle some olive oil on a slice of sourdough and toast it, but I’m too hungry to wait for grill lines to appear. I yank it out of the toaster oven when it’s warm and crispy.
Next I slather on some hummus. It’s a generous serving, but about as much as Ina used when she made this sandwich on her show two weeks ago.
I top it all off with some radish slices.
My first bite. Mmmmm…
The Verdict: DELICIOUS. This sandwich, aside from being high in protein and low in fat, is wonderful! It’s so full of flavor and interesting texture that it should certainly be in everyone’s sandwich rotation. What’s also impressive about it is that it takes two fairly standard pantry items — tuna and hummus — and elevates them to gourmet status. I can’t wait for lunch tomorrow…
