Turkey Hummus Veggie-Wich

I love cooking a turkey and using it on sandwiches, in pasta salads, soups, you name it!


Sprinkle your turkey with salt and pepper and cook according to size of turkey!

Once cooked, slice up, dice up, shred up- And FREEZE!

Here is a yummy sandwich you can make with your sliced up turkey.

TURKEY HUMMUS VEGGIE-WICH

Make your favorite Hummus recipe:

Classic Hummus
Ingredients:
  • 3 cans (14.5 Oz.) Garbanzo Beans aka Chickpeas, Rinsed And Drained
  • 1/3 cup Plus 1 Tablespoon Tahini
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Chopped, Or More To Taste
  • 1/2 whole Lemon, Juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin, Or More To Taste
  • Salt To Taste
  • Fresh Basil Or Italian Parsley
  • 3 Tablespoons To 5 Tablespoons Cold Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Preparation Instructions:
Combine chickpeas with all ingredients, except water and olive oil, in a blender or food processor.
Pulse until mixture becomes somewhat smooth and combined, but do not over mix.
Add water as necessary to facilitate blending. At the end, add olive oil and pulse no more than three times, just to incorporate.
Pour mixture into a bowl and stir to ensure mixture is combined. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to three days in the fridge. It's a great dip for pita chips or veggies!

2 slices whole wheat bread (toasted if desired)

¼ medium avocado, mashed

½ medium cucumber, sliced
