Whole Wheat Veggie Hummus Sandwich | 21 Day Fix | Weight Watchers

Whole Wheat Veggie Hummus Sandwich | 21 Day Fix | Weight Watchers
500 Shares

Raise your hand if you love a good sandwich! I eat a tomato sandwich almost every day (it’s true…I can’t get enough of tomatoes). So I knew I wanted to include a sandwich on Aldi Week. But rather than my average tomato sandwhich (which doesn’t taste average to me, but is pretty standard), I put together this gorgeous Whole Wheat Veggie Hummus Sandwich that is not only filling, but also super good for you.

if you’re new here, Aldi Week is a collection of seven dinner recipes using some of my favorite finds from Aldi. For this recipe, I’m highlighting their Red Pepper Hummus AND the general super low prices on produce. You can find all of the Aldi Week recipes here. And you can find all the Trader Joe’s Week recipes here!

What veggies can I use for a Veggie Hummus Sandwich?

The beauty of veggie sandwiches is that you can pretty much use any veggies you like. There are no rules. This sandwich uses zucchini, carrots, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes. I considered olives, but it was getting kind of big so I had to draw the line somewhere. Some other fantastic options that would be great on this particular sandwich are cucumbers, olives, and peppers. I also recommend avocado and spinach!

This recipe is for 1 sandwich. But you’ll see that most of the veggies don’t get used all the way up for one sandwich. I recommend prepping enough veggies to make several sandwiches over the course of the week (for example, one carrot will definitely make it through four sandwiches!).

What is the best hummus for sandwiches?

Any hummus will work, but I love a good roasted red bell pepper hummus for a sandwich like this! It just gives it that little something extra.

Not hummus related, but I also recommend a drizzle of olive oil over your sandwich, along with salt and pepper – just like Subway does it!

21 Day Fix Vegetarian Sandwich

This recipe is vegetarian, so it’s great if you’re on the 21 Day Fix vegetarian plan (or the traditional plan). This is also a fantastic way to get in those green containers! You can cut the hummus in half if you want to use a smaller amount of that precious blue container (I totally get it!).

Weight Watchers Vegetarian Sandwich

This sandwich is also perfect for Weight Watchers. The new plans really encourage whole foods and lots of veggies – this will fit right in with whatever plan you’re on.

Here’s a tip for the 21 Day Fix AND Weight Watchers: serve this sandwich open-faced to reduce points/containers.

Because this is Aldi Week, I am including the cost of this recipe. The cost below reflects four sandwiches (because it was too much work to figure out the cost of 1/4 carrot!).

The total cost of this recipe was right around $8, so less than two bucks per sandwich. You’ll have bread left over, too! That price assumes you already have salt, pepper, olive oil, and butter.

Notes

21 Day Fix Container Counts: 2 yellow, 1/2 blue, 1 green (add teaspoons to your count if you add the olive oil)
Serve this sandwich open-faced and it will be 1 yellow, 1/4 blue, 1 green (add teaspoons depending on if you add oil or not)
Weight Watchers Points
The Aldi brand bread that I used to make this sandwich is 3 points per slice, and 7 points for two slices. To make this sandwich fewer points, serve it open-faced OR use a "skinny" bread for fewer points. You can also halve the hummus. Don't skimp on the veggies, though - those are all 0 points!
Purple plan: 9 points
Green plan: 9 points
Blue plan: 9 points
