1 cup hummus (original flavor)

1/3 cup pesto (jarred or homemade, your choice)

6 slices crusty bread (from a large loaf or baguette)

1/2 cup thinly shaved carrots (a vegetable peeler works great)

1/2 cup thinly sliced apples

1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumbers

1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts

Chips, for serving

1/2 cup roasted red pepper slices (jarred or homemade, up to you)

1/3 cup thinly sliced radishes


  1. First of all, equally divide the hummus between 2 bowls and swirl the pesto into one of the bowls. The pesto hummus is for your adult mouth! Yay, right? 
  2. Take 3 slices of the crusty bread and slather with the original hummus. Top with half of the shaved carrots, followed by all of the apple slices and cucumbers. Top with half of the sprouts and serve it just like that to the kiddos! With some of the chips, natch. 
  3. Now, slather the remaining 3 slices of crusty bread with the pesto hummus and top with the rest of the carrots, followed by the delicious roasted red peppers and radishes (spice!) and the rest of the sprouts. Serve with chips. Holla. 
  4. Super-crazy simple veggie lunch or dinner be SERVED.
