- 2 carrots peeled into ribbons or shredded

*This recipe is easy to scale up to feed a crowd or scale down to feed just 1 or 2.
*Toast the bread for extra crunch.
*Use your favorite hummus....store-bought or homemade. Homemade hummus can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for several days so it's ready when you are.
*Don't be afraid to slather the hummus on thick. It provides healthy plant based protein to keep you full and satisfied.
*Place a layer of greens over the hummus before adding any "wet" vegetables to keep the bread from getting soggy.
*Slice all the veggies thinly. Too many chunky or oddly shaped veggies will make for a cumbersome sandwich that may fall apart.
*All of the components of this sandwich can be prepped ahead and kept in the fridge in individual air-tight containers for 2 to 3 days. Note: Do not toast the bread until you are ready to eat.
