I was scrounging around in the fridge and freezer looking for something to make a simple lunch and an excuse to have even more of the Mediterranean Hummus that I have been obsessed with. I have to say it was the best hummus I ever ate. We finished a GIANT tub from Sam’s Club in 2 days. Shamefully, I even cleaned out the residue to make sure none went to waste.
Anyway, I found I had a frozen pack of Trader Joe’s 160 calories 100% whole wheat 6” Middle Eastern Flatbreads. I quickly fired up the cast iron pan, when it was nice and hot, I grilled the bread on both sides until it was crispy and hot. While it was grilling I went out to the garden and picked a ripe tomato and some basil. I sliced the tomato, sprinkled a tiny bit of pink salt and finished with a drizzle of olive oil. As that rested, I took the flatbread off the griddle and smeared a very generous portion of hummus on top. Then I layered on the tomatoes, and then thin ribbons of basil and paper thin sliced of super sweet onions.
It was so simple and so delicious. I am hungry again just thinking about it. Got to go back to Sam’s Club for more of that hummus. It inspired quite a few dished in the two days it lasted!
