Mediterranean Deli Sandwich

If you're in a hurry, pesto can be bought in jars at the supermarket and hummus can be found in the deli section

If you're in a hurry, pesto can be bought in jars at the supermarket and hummus can be found in the deli section. The basil, tomatoes, lettuce and sprouts all provide a heap of antioxidants such as lycopene and beta carotene. The whole grains will provide you with sustained energy for your adventures.

One large loaf of whole grain bread, unsliced
2 beefsteak tomatoes
1 cup (250 ml) alfalfa sprouts
1/2 cup (125 ml) hummus or pesto
3 leaves of green leaf lettuce
Salt and pepper
6 soy cheese slices (optional)
6 soy turkey slices (optional)

Cut the loaf of bread around the "equator" so that you have a top and a bottom piece. On the bottom piece, thickly spread the hummus or pesto. Layer the lettuce, and follow with tomato, alfalfa sprouts, then the soy cheese and turkey slices. Always keep tomato between lettuce and another item to prevent the sandwich from becoming soggy. Wrap well and take a knife for slicing on location. Serves six to eight.
