Mediterranean Inspired Flatbread


I made this flatbread while we were home on a Saturday afternoon with no lunch plans and some produce in the refrigerator that I didn’t want spoiling. The ‘Mediterranean’ inspiration actually comes from hummus. I make my hummus as smooth and creamy as possible with a lot of garlic and tahini, so it gave the the flatbread a delicious kick of flavor. This took less than ten minutes to make, and you can easily pack the ingredients and pop it into a toaster oven for a couple of minutes for your work lunch (suffice to say that my co-workers were very jealous).

INGREDIENTS (makes two servings):

1 Piece of flatbread (I use 100% whole wheat lavash)

4 tablespoons hummus

2 slices of deli turkey

4 slices of hard salami

1/2 cup fresh arugula

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes cut in halves

1/4 cup low fat mozzarella cheese


Spread the hummus evenly on the flatbread. Rip up the turkey into smaller pieces and spread over bread followed by salami slices. Drizzle the cheese over the flatbread and top with tomato slices and arugula. Pop it in the oven and broil for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bread toasted.
