This vegan bagel sandwich is a simple lunch that’s ready in no time. Just toast a bagel. Then top it with a slathering of homemade hummus and fresh, crunchy sliced vegetables.
So far this “Veganuary,” I’ve shared 40 deliciously doable recipes for new vegans, a vegan egg salad sandwich for lunch in a rush, and chili cheese tater tots that utilize leftover chili in the most tantalizing of ways.
I’m continuing these fast and filling meals with today’s vegan bagel sandwich with hummus and vegetables.
Vegan bagel sandwich
This easy vegan bagel sandwich is topped with a generous schmear of homemade hummus, crisp cucumber, onion, and bell pepper slices. If you’re short on time or energy, store-bought hummus works too!
I like to use crunchy vegetables in my bagel sandwich, so that it doesn’t get wilty if I’m not able to get to it right away.
Sturdy cucumbers, onions, and red bell peppers all stand up to a slathering of hummus without withering.
If you have a ripe avocado on hand, a few slivers would also work well here. (Just remember to eat it right away, as avocado oxidizes when it comes into contact with air.)
