This sandwich satisfies all of my favorite cravings: creamy avocado, spiced hummus, crispy lettuce and carrot, and crusty whole grain bread. All I can say is that it’s heaven in a sandwich. Why did I name it the Stardust Sandwich? Today was one of those picture perfect California days, so Toby, Jake, and I went to the beach. The sun was shining, the ocean glistened, and the sand was toasty under my feet. Intoxicated by the natural beauty, I started singing “Woodstock” to myself, loving the lines, “we are stardust, we are golden, and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.” I have no idea why the song popped into my head, but I rolled with it and thanked the universe for the inspiration.
