Ever eaten at a gourmet sandwich shop and tried something new … and was BLOWN AWAY by the deliciousness?!

Well, I’ve got a recipe for you today that’s based on one of those sandwiches. I’m drooling just thinking about it. It’s crunchy (the toasted bread) … creamy (the avocado & hummus) … and tangy (the sauerkraut).

PLUS … it’s super filling, fiber-rich, contains gut-friendly sauerkraut, and can be entirely plant-based if you use a vegan butter spread.

Depending on your preferences, you can use pumpernickel bread, sprouted-grain bread, or good-quality gluten-free bread.

Avocado Sauerkraut Sandwich

  • 2 slices bread
  • ½ Tbsp grass-fed butter or vegan butter spread
  • 3 big Tbsp of your favorite hummus
  • 3 big Tbsp naturally fermented sauerkraut
  • ¼ avocado, peeled and cut into slices

Directions:

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • While it’s heating, take one of the bread slices, butter one side of it, and place it butter-side-down on the skillet.
  • Spread the slice with half of the hummus, and cover it with the sauerkraut and avocado slices.
  • For the remaining slice of bread, slather one side of it with butter and the other side with the remaining hummus.
  • Place it hummus-side-down over the avocado slices.
  • Let it cook for about 4-6 minutes until the bread is toasted.
  • Flip the sandwich over and cook for another 4-6 minutes, until the sandwich reaches your desired level of toastiness.

Roasted red pepper hummus is so good in this, but I don’t think you can go wrong with any flavor!

Try it and let me know what you think!
