Brie LT Sandwich

I tried this amazing sandwich at The Laughing Buddha, a cozy local restaurant in Sudbury, Ontario. I really wanted to make one for myself so here is my take on this delicious sandwich.

Start by toasting two slices of your favourite bread. I used light rye bread for this recipe. 
Next, evenly spread one and a half tablespoons of hummus of the two slices of toasted bread. Again, you can use your preference of flavour, I used light garlic hummus. 
Top one slice with 15g of alfalfa sprouts. 

Next, layer a few fresh basil leaves on top of the sprouts. I went to two separate grocery stores on the hunt for fresh basil and was unsuccessful, therefore I used spinach leaves for my sandwich. Either works, however the basil with evidently give the sandwich a much fresher taste. 

Slice 40g of brie and layer on top of basil. 

Next, top with a few slices of tomato and cucumber. Crack some fresh pepper on top and close off your sandwich with the other slice of toasted bread.
