Eggplant humus sandwich

We have a new addition to the family. In fact two additions and no I was not pregnant with twins and keeping it from you.

We got the kids their first pets..a pair of love birds.

The kids are glued next to the cage monitoring the birds every move.

Muuuuuuuuum they ate

Muuuuuuuuum they are drinking water

Muuuuuuuuum they are playing on the swing

Muuuuuuuuuum I think they are good friends

Muuuuuuuuum I think the girl hates the boy

Muuuuuuuuuum can I teach them how to fly

Muuuuuuuuuum can I give them more food

Muuuuuuuuum is really hoping the enthusiasm will fade out in the next few days!


Today’s recipe might sound  strange but trust me it is a pleasant surprise for the taste buds. I was sceptical about the combination at first but after the first bite all the scepticism evaporated.

The humus provided a background for the other flavors. It paired beautifully with the eggplant. The feta add saltness that was balanced by the juicy tomatoes. The lettuce adds the crunch and the mint is a blast of freshness…all my requirements for a yummy sandwich checked :)

I have had this recipe for a long time, I sadly can’t remember where I got it from.

2 slices fried or grilled eggplant
