Cucumber & Egg Sandwich

Made this up tonight post-workout and trying to use some of the leftover cucumber from vegetable trays people brought over last weekend. I am a firm believer in the usage of hummus on sandwiches; I think particularly in veggie sandwiches, it helps bring everything together–it’s versatile and can be seasoned all kinds of ways, and is way better for you than something like mayo (I hate most condiments).

Stupidly Easy Cucumber & Egg Sandwich

  • As much sliced cucumber as you freaking want, whatever
  • As much hummus as you want, man (I used jalapeño hummus, but other kinds would work too–I just found this spicy and light)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 slices of bread, unless you plan on making a halfwich, which would be very difficult with the given ingredients
  • Paprika to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Little bit of butter or oil
  1. Spread as much hummus as desired on one or both slices of bread (I just do one). Slap as many slices of cucumber on your sandwich as you feel like.
  2. Break the egg into a small bowl. Add some  paprika and fresh ground black pepper and beat the egg lightly, mixing everything together.
  3. Heat a pan on medium with a little bit of butter (or oil; I just like the way slightly buttery eggs taste). Gently pour your egg into the pan and sprinkle some salt on it. When it’s solid enough to get a spatula under the side, flip or fold the egg however you need to in order for it to fit on your sandwich well. Scramble that sucker as little or much as you like it, then scoop it up and put it on your sandwich. Fin.
