This sweet and simple sandwich pairs the last of summer’s heirloom tomatoes with the first crisp apples of fall. It’s a satisfying meal for lunch or dinner during the busy fall season, packed with protein, fiber and taste! This recipe comes to us from Rini of Healing Tomato.

Serves 2

  • Half of a green apple
  • Half of an heirloom tomato
  • Half of a red onion into circular shapes
  • 1 medium sized carrot
  • 4 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1 cup of hummus
  • 8 slices of avocado
  • 7-10 leaves of baby spinach

Cut half of a green apple into circular pieces
Cut heirloom tomato into circular pieces
Cut half of a red onion into circular shapes
Shred 1 medium sized carrot. It should make about 1/2 cup worth
Toast 4 slices of whole wheat bread
On a plate, place 1 slice of bread and spread hummus on it. Be generous with your hummus. Personally, I like about a 1/4 inch layer of hummus on the toast. Do the same for 2nd piece of toast and set that aside
Add about 7-10 leaves of baby spinach
Place four slices of green apples on top of the spinach
Place 3-4 slices of the tomato pieces on top of the green apples
Place the onion rounds on top of the tomatoes
If you are using avocado, top the onions with the avocado slices
Close the sandwich with the 2nd toast from step #6. Using a sharp knife, cut diagonally. Cut the halves diagonally.
