Combining #FarmersMarketWeek with my August Lunch series, I’ve brought you a quick and easy sandwich that’s amazing for breakfast or lunch. It’s my version of a sandwich I like to get at a popular bagel chain in my area. (I may or may not plan meetings around lunchtime near that location.)

Now, this might seem like a simple sandwich, but it’s one that’s full of bright flavors from the fresh vegetables. It’s best when you use whatever is freshest from your garden or local farmer’s market. If you can get bakery bagels, do it, although something like Thomas’ bagels will work in a pinch. Use your ripest tomato. I like plum tomatoes because I prefer less seeds, but the key is a RIPE tomato. A little red onion, maybe a little avocado if you have it. Concerned about the lack of meat? The cream cheese and hummus (I use my homemade hummus) provide the protein and staying power to make this hearty, satisfying sandwich.
