In a lunch rut?
You have to try this bagel!
A toasted sesame seed bagel, spread with tangy mango chutney, then given a generous layer of spicy falafel, topped with sweet, crunchy grated carrot and finished off with a generous dollop or two of creamy homemade hummus.
This is a supreme sandwich! The flavours and textures are perfect and you may groan as you eat it, much to the amusement of your colleagues.
If you haven't tried homemade hummus, try my recipe for lemon & coriander hummus. It is so easy & quick to make and tastes much better than shop bought. You can also leave out the coriander and just add a squeeze of lemon for a more traditional hummus. My husband isn't keen on garlic, so when I make it for him, I just add about a quarter of a clove. Yes, he is a wuss!
It is also my entry for this month's No Croutons Required. The theme is sandwiches and entries much be vegetarian. You have until Saturday 21 October 2012. I will be posting in the evening, so you have until then to add it to the linky Be creative, think bagels, croissants, tortillas, artisan bread, pitta bread, crumpets...................
