I have an addiction right now, quick hummus n sandwiches for dinner. It also makes a perfect snack box for kids n elders too.. Making them at home brings in lots of healthier options like fresh veggies, wheat or multigrain breads n homemade spreads.

In Chennai sandwich sellers don't even know what is called as Brown Bread / Wheat Bread?? I question most of them who have set up Kiosks outside super markets n they seriously blink.. they still go wit the White breads which is not my take.. n with loads of old butter n un cleaned grills / toasters... 

The recently opened French Loaf comes as a saver for my weekly Bread pick ups. Thr wheat bread and Brown breads are the yummiest n softest (though thr prices are 100 % higher than the other ones in market) i still adore thr breads..

Made a quick BLACK OLIVE HUMMUS n WHEAT BREAD SANDWICHES for dinner!! Here is the recipe!!

1 cup - Garbanzo beans / chickpeas, cooked until soft
