We decided to bring together some of our favorite dishes to make an epic sandwich. The fusion of pesto and hummus brings this to the next level, and it is healthy and oil-free!


Oil-free Pesto Hummus:

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 3 roasted garlic cloves
  • 15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika + more for garnish
  • 1/4 tsp salt, or as needed to taste
  • 24 tablespoons water, or as needed to blend


  • 2 slices toasted sourdough bread
  • 12 tablespoons pesto hummus spread
  • 11 1/2 tablespoons beet sauerkraut (or any kraut of choice)
  • 2 bell pepper slices (cut in rounds, we used red and yellow)
  • Small handful shredded carrots
  • 1 leaf of romaine lettuce

In our lunchbox:


  1. Preheat an oven to 350F and line a small baking sheet. Add the garlic cloves to the baking sheet and roast for 6-8 minutes, or until golden.
  2. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or high speed blender and process until smooth, adding water if necessary.
  3. Adjust seasonings to taste.


Note: you will have extra Hummus but you’ll thank us later, trust me ?
