The concept of this sandwich might seem pretty simple, but one secret ingredient makes all the difference…love! Preparing the beans and houmous from scratch provides an extremely tasty sandwich! Its also a versatile, inexpensive and fibre-licious sandwich that most main stream providers do not stock…but even if they did…were not paying £3 for it! Meal plan and save for your next holiday instead! Here’s to another great vegan lunch (hopefully enjoyed in the sunshine this Bank Holiday weekend…well fingers crossed)! 🙂

 Oh and here’s wishing a very Happy Birthday to our dear friend Beth! ❤
