Step 1:

If you're using a regular oven, preheat it to 450 degrees F now. If you're using a toaster oven, you won't need to preheat.


Step 2:

Slice the tomatoes in half.


Step 3:

Spread the tomatoes out on the baking tray, cut side facing up, using parchment paper underneath for easier cleanup. Drizzle them with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and basil to taste.


Step 4:

Put the tomatoes in the oven to roast. (If you're using a toaster oven, as I did, set the temperature to 450 degrees F and change the setting to “broil.”) Leave them in for approximately 10 minutes, checking them halfway through.

This would also be a nice thing to try on an indoor grill. I'm going to try it on my George Foreman and see...

Step 5:

While the tomatoes roast, scoop the insides of the avocado into a bowl and mash them.


Step 6:

Spread hummus onto two slices of bread, and spread the avocado onto the other two. Sprinkle garlic powder and basil onto the hummus, and shred some fresh cilantro onto the avocado.


Step 7:

Once the tomatoes are done roasting, carefully take them out of the oven, and spread them out onto the two hummus slices of bread. (You may want to let them cool down a bit first.)


Step 8:

Match up the avocado/cilantro slices each to a tomato/hummus slice, make into sandwiches, and enjoy!

Have you tried this sandwich with the bread toasted or the sandwich pressed like a panini? I'm interested to try it but I wonder if heat would destroy some of the fresher flavors.

Laura Hogg says:
Dave - when I first tried it, I actually did toast the bread, and it was awesome! I decided not to toast it when I took these pictures, just to try something different. It's great both ways. Let me know if you try it out panini-style :)
