Invention Sandwich

I had been studying all day and was starving, and there was very little left in the house to eat. The result of this predicament was so easy and tasty that I would highly recommend it even if the ingredients aren't the only stuff left in your house.

First, I didn't have bread, but I had a bread mix. I didn't trust this stuff, and it had been in the back of the cupboard forever. Upon closer inspection, though, it turned out that all the ingredients in it were natural and vegan, and that all you had to do to make it was add seltzer water. I did this, and it came out so yummy...I was really impressed. The stuff is called Quick Loaf, and they sell it in my local supermarket, which usually has a lousy selection, so I'd wager it isn't too hard to find.

Next, I made easy hummus by sauteing my last half an onion and a bit of garlic, and mixing that through the food processor along with a can of chick peas (drained), the last of my tahini (about 1/4 cup), the juice of a lemon, a little white wine vinegar (2 tablespoons, maybe), some salt and pepper, a little cumin, and about a quarter jar of kalamata olives.

Now, the trick is to slice the bread as soon as you take it out of the oven, so it's nice and warm. Spread it with a generous amount of hummus, top it off with alfalfa sprouts (or some sort of greenery--whatever's around), and drizzle a bit of oil and vinegar over it. Yum.
