Mediterranean Veggie Bagelwich

On our last day of classes, a group of us 4th year Dietetics students went out to celebrate with lunch at Burgoo – a great soup/sandwich/stew/fondue restaurant close to campus (I’ve been there a few times before, and posted about them here). I was really tempted to get my favourite sandwich – the Vegiterranean. It’s this multigrain hearty bread piled high with hummus, roasted red pepper, tomato, feta, artichoke, cucumber, and balsamic dressed field greens. Amazing I tell you. But I had wanted to branch out and try more of their menu, so I went with a stew. Sadly, my stew was only okay, and seeing a fair number of my classmates enjoying the exact sandwich I love only left me with a craving for one.

Time passed. I made bagels. Then a light went on in my head – I bet these would make a great base for a sandwich just like that one at Burgoo. I’m sure you can guess what happened next.

I made my own hummus (did I mention I have a functioning food processor again?), assembled ingredients, and put my own spin on the original. I wish I could come up with a catchy name like Vegiterranean, but alas, it’s taken. So Mediterranean Veggie Bagelwich will just have to do.

serves 1

Creamy hummus, cool cucumber, spicy red pepper, and tangy feta combine to create a hearty, flavourful, veggie filled sandwich. Pair it with your favourite soup for a comforting fall or winter lunch. If you don’t have bagels, substitute your favourite rustic whole grain bread.

  • 1 whole grain bagel (or make these kale bagels)
  • hummus (homemade if you have it)
  • roasted red pepper
  • sliced red onion
  • cucumber slices
  • chopped marinated artichoke hearts
  • your favourite lettuce
  • crumbled feta (I like sheep’s milk)

1. Smear hummus on both sides of the bagel, then pile on the toppings. Close up your sandwich and enjoy!

Note – I have left out exact quantities on purpose. They seem a little silly when you are talking about making a sandwich – just add ingredients to suite your own tastes. Heck, even add in the tomatoes from the original if that floats your boat.

Just looking at these photos has my mouth watering. I might just need to bake more bagels just for sandwich making!

    Beautiful sandwich. I know you posted it before the holidays, but I am in the mood for it right now! I’m enjoying some lighter options after all the feasting.
