Combine hummus and bbq sauce with canned tuna and red onion for a sweet and savory open-faced bbq hummus tuna sandwich. It’s easy, healthy and absolutely delicious!
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of using hummus for tuna salad. I also love a good sweet and savory combo, which is why I adore this mayo-free sweet potato tuna salad and the bbq hummus tuna sandwich I’m sharing today.
Yes, I realize that hummus, bbq sauce and canned tuna aren’t a typical pairing, but you have to trust me on this one. It’s so good!
I used Sabra’s garlic hummus. I honestly haven’t met a hummus flavor I didn’t like, but garlic is still my tried and true favorite, especially for savory recipes.
Speaking of Sabra, they’re an awesome partner of mine! One of their factories is located right here in Richmond, VA and employs nearly 600 people. Surprisingly, Richmond has been described as the largest food desert in the country and Sabra is working to help change that. They’ve teamed up with Renew Richmond, a non-profit dedicated to urban agriculture in underserved areas of Richmond, to plant community gardens and provide nutrition and culinary education workshops.
Last fall I helped plant garden beds at a local high school as part of the initiative and this spring I had the opportunity to help plant at their employee workshare garden while on the campus for a blogger visit.
It’s been really awesome for me to see this program come to fruition and I’m excited to see what’s in store for 2018. Sabra’s team has already made plans to continue to partner with Renew Richmond, while also joining The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) to bring a program called Wellness Wednesdays to the Bronx community. Wellness Wednesdays will offer students, teachers, and families from the Bronx and throughout New York City free access to hands-on gardening and wellness activities.
