This healthy autumn turkey sandwich is packed with sweet flavor — crispy apples slices, roasted sweet potato and hummus.
The sweet-savory lover in me is going wild for this sandwich! It has just the right amount of sweetness paired with a hint of savory and spice. Plus, it has a fall theme going on that makes me so happy right now.
Just look at those layers — so many flavors and textures.
Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside…
Turkey, apples and hummus… oh my! 🙂
I’ve been using hummus as a sandwich spread and a base for tuna salad for years so having these spreads in convenient condiment-style packaging is awesome. I also love the different flavors. Since childhood I’ve been a honey mustard fanatic so the honey mustard is definitely my favorite, but I could see the sea salt & pepper being delicious on this egg and hummus breakfast wrap and the garlic herb would be awesome in my no mayo tuna salad.
Okay so back to this Autumn Turkey Sandwich. It’s got so many delicious flavors, creaminess from the avocado and hummus along with crispy texture from the apple slices. Plus, it holds together well. This is key because you can easily pack it for lunch. Pair it with some raw veggies or an apple and you’ve got yourself a satisfying fall meal.
The sandwich is so simple to put together too. The only real prep work is roasting your sweet potato slices. I made a big batch of sweet potato toast earlier in the week so I already had the roasted sweet potato slices ready to go. If you haven’t roasted a sweet potato ahead of time, you can easily use the microwave to “bake” one up and use a slice of baked sweet potato. It won’t be exactly the same because roasting gives a bit more flavor, but it will still be delicious.
A fall-inspired turkey sandwich with crispy apple slices, roasted sweet potato and hummus.
4 slices of whole grain, sprouted or gluten-free bread
1/4 cup hummus
1/4 cup red onion
1/2 small apple, thinly sliced
2 roasted sweet potato slices*
1/2 avocado, sliced
6–8 ounces fresh deli turkey (I used black pepper)
small handful baby spinach
Put sandwiches together by laying all four slices of bread out. Add about 1 Tablespoon of the hummus to each slice. Set two slices aside as these will be your sandwich toppers. Split the sandwich ingredients in half and add them to the two slices of bread in the order listed. Once you get to the baby spinach top each with a remaining slice of bread, cut each in half and enjoy!
*For the roasted sweet potato slices, use the sweet potato toast method by thinly slicing a sweet potato into 1/4” thick pieces, coat in small amount of oil, season with salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet with a little room between each slice. Bake at 400° for about 15-20 minutes, flip slices over and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until a fork can easily pierce the sweet potato.
