Beet and Cucumber Sandwich with Piccata-Style Hummus

We needed lunch.  Something quick.  Something with beets.  Remember this?  Yep, I still have the remainder of that $2 bunch of beets.  My proud purchase.  Instead of borscht and risotto and chocolate cake, I needed something to do with them.  Ergo: sandwich.

The ingredients are simple, because… it’s a sandwich.  But, it’s good.  Might even quickly become a summer staple at my house!

Ok, back to the recipe –

I have a strong desire to leave this one blank and just list ingredients without measurements, because really – the best part of making a sandwich is the power that you have over what goes IN and what STAYS out.  But, measurements are important to give you an idea.  So, I give you measurements.  Enjoy.

Beet and Cukes Sandwich with Piccata-Style Hummus

1/4 cup Piccata-Style Hummus, divided
1/2 cup thinly sliced cooked beets (I used the leftover steamed beets from this recipe, REALLY good)
1/3 cup thinly sliced cucumber
2 pieces sandwich bread
Vegan butter (for toasting bread)

Directions: Butter one side of each piece of bread.  Place bread in a medium-sized skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  Cook until bread is toasted and lightly golden brown.  Flip bread slices over, butter, and cook over medium-high heat until toasted to a light brown.  Remove skillet from heat, and now you’re ready to assemble the sandwich.

First – spread 2 Tablespoons of Piccata-style hummus on each piece of bread.
