For this recipe, I went with one of my favorite hummus with air-fried Brussel sprouts. The combination is a true garden sandwich the flavors are earthy from the greens, and nutty from the hummus and alfalfa sprouts with a slight crisp from the Brussel sprouts.

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST GARDEN SANDWICH
veggies: for the vegetables like cauliflower and brussel sprouts i like to lightly toss them in olive oil, salt, and pepper before adding them to the air fryer. the olive oil will allow the seasonings to stick while the simple seasoning will bring out the flavor.
layers matter: it is important to spread the hummus edge to edge. most veggie sandwiches need a little extra glue to keep together since the ingredients don’t lay very flat. the alfalfa sprouts and spinach keeps everything from sliding around too much.
sturdy bread: sturdy bread is the key to a good sandwich. originally I’ve made this sandwich with soft ciabatta bread. the hummus spreads nicely into the nooks and crannies. a sourdough, soft French, or just toasted wheat work. avoid crunchier bread-like hard ciabatta or French they can cut the roof of your mouth.
roasting: air frying is how i get my brussel sprouts super crunchy. they mimic a fried brussel sprout without all the fat. air fry the brussel sprouts till they are spread apart and dark around the edges.
