Happy Meatless Monday everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. I was in the kitchen a lot, testing and retesting recipes (one recipe in particular that I’m still mad didn’t work out) =( but also doing some pretty exciting stuff. I’m stoked to tell you all that I’ve been working hard on some nonfood related posts for the blog. I’ve decided to expand my blog to include health and wellness articles/information since it’s such a huge passion of mine. It’s very exciting for me and I’ve got all sorts of fun stuff heading your way. Stay tuned! And don’t worry, recipes will still be a part of it. =)

So onto this Bagel Thin Pesto Sandwiches recipe…the inspiration for this sandwich came from last time we were in Hawaii, when we went to a coffee shop in Kauai called Java Kai. They had the BEST coffee and these amazing hummus/pesto bagel sandwiches. That’s what inspired this less-carb version of these simple, yet satisfying sandwiches. I love that they work well for breakfast, lunch or just as a snack.

Using a food processor, add the pine nuts and chop until fine. Add the rest of the pesto ingredients and blend until combined and smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, a mortar and pestle bowl also works well (although a little more work). I suggest this one.

Toast the bagel thins in a toaster. On each half, add 1 tablespoon of hummus, followed by 2 tablespoons pesto. Top with tomato, roasted red pepper, or arugula and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. This recipe makes 4 bagel halves (or 2 full bagels). They are best served immediately when the bagels are still warm. I’m thinking the pesto/hummus would be equally amazing on English muffins. Yum…
