  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium or 2 large yellow onions very thinly sliced
  • 2 medium sweet apples such as Honeycrisp or Fuji, very thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons Creamy Pumpkin Hummus or prepared hummus
  • 8 slices whole grain or gluten-free bread
  • Olive oil or butter for the pan optional


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, onions, and salt to the pan, stirring well. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, then turn the heat to medium-low and saute an additional 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of hummus on 4 slices of bread. Top each with sliced apples and the caramelized onions. Top each with a second piece of bread, pressing firmly.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. For each sandwich, heat a teaspoon of olive oil or butter (if using), then add the sandwich and grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until the bread is golden and crispy, and the filling is warmed through.
  • Slice and serve immediately.
