with honey Dijon green beans

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
This fresh, produce-forward sandwich got high reviews when we last featured it in 2017. The flavor of the tomatoes really makes the difference here, so seek out heirloom tomatoes if possible. (Even better if you can get them from the farmer's market!)


Avocado, Tomato, Hummus and Sprout Sandwich:
  • Tomatoes, medium - 2 , sliced (heirloom preferable)
  • Lettuce, romaine - 4 leaves , torn
  • Avocados - 1 , sliced
  • Sandwich bread - 8 slices
  • Hummus - 6 oz
  • Sprouts, alfalfa - 2 oz
Honey Dijon Green Beans:
  • Green beans - 1 lb , trimmed
  • Vinegar, red or white wine - 1 Tbsp
  • Mustard, Dijon - 1 1/2 tsp (use large grain / stone ground if you have it)
  • Honey - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Oil, olive - 2 Tbsp


  1. Green beans - Trim green beans. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead.)
  2. Make vinaigrette - (If making Thursday’s meal, make vinaigrette for that night at the same time.) Whisk together vinegar, mustard, and honey. Add oil while whisking. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  1. Place green beans in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave on high until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Toss green beans with vinaigrette (if you made the vinaigrette for Thursday night at the same time, reserve about 2/3 for tomorrow). Season with some salt and pepper.
  3. Toast bread.
  4. Assemble sandwiches by spreading hummus on half the bread slices. Top with avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, sprouts, and remaining slices of bread. Serve with green beans on the side and enjoy!
