I actually quite enjoyed this, more than I thought I would. I used a light oaty sort of bread and made the sandwich just before eating, I don't think this would travel well in a lunch box as the bread may go soggy as mentioned in another comment below. I will certainly try this again!

This has long been a packed lunch favourite with the kids, but works better with wraps or pita

the recipe worked quite nicely also with cheddar cheese instead of the hummus, thank you!

I used my own home made hummus, and while I LOVED the carrots and raisins, not sure I liked the texture of the hummus with it... It also made the bread a bit soggy, the extra liquid of the vinegar and oil that is. I may make it again, but I may try a different hummus recipe next time, or omit the hummus and use cream cheese or something instead. God Bless ~Amy
