hummus melts

hummus meltsThis post is going to be quick and easy, just like my new favorite meal: hummus melts. I make these for lunch or dinner when I’m short on time, or on the weekend for a more substantial snack. You could do this with homemade hummus, but if you’re a cheater like I’ve been lately, I highly recommend the Sabra basil pesto hummus; it’s got great flavor that works well with here.

♦1 Thomas Multigrain English Muffin
1-2 tbs. Sabra basil pesto hummus
2 c. spinach, raw
1/8 c. skim mozzarella shredded cheese
1 tbs. olive oil
1/4 tsp. minced garlic

Toast English muffin. In a small pan over medium heat, heat oil and garlic. Add spinach and sautée. (Spinach will cook down immensely). Remove from heat. When muffin is toasted to your liking, spread hummus on both sides, add spinach and top with sprinkles of mozzarella cheese. I eat mine open face so it feels like more, but it’s up to you.

Calories? 254 calories per serving.
Total time?
 10 minutes
Cost? $1.50 spinach, $2.69 English muffins, $1.99 cheese, $2.50 hummus.
Overall success relative to expectations? 10 out 10. I’m sure this sandwich would be enjoyable without it, but the basil pesto hummus takes it to another level. I love how quickly such a delicious meal can come together, and a 250-calorie lunch or dinner ain’t too shabby.
