One of my favorite sandwich condiments is honey mustard. The slightly sweet, slightly spicy taste gets along with practically all the traditional sandwich fillings from cheese to meats to vegetables. So you can imagine how excited I was to see that Sabra has now come out with a Honey Mustard Spread – the nutrition benefits of hummus mixed with the honey-mustard flavor that I love?! Yes please!

ingredients

In case you haven’t heard, Sabra, one of my favorite hummus brands, is dishing out new sandwich spreads, which are made using fresh, whole ingredients that I’ve come to love in hummus but with the consistency and taste of a classic sandwich condiment. So far there are three flavors (and I’m crossing my fingers them to roll out more!): Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper, Garlic Herb (I could eat this stuff by itself), and Honey Mustard. All of the spreads are only 35 calories per tablespoon and contain 75% less fat than mayonnaise. Plus no utensil needed to get your spread on as they come in convenient squeeze bottles. I am already almost out of my free samples and will for sure be stocking up on more!

While ham seemed like a natural combination with honey mustard, I wanted to put a Fall spin on it – after all coffee and desserts seem to be getting plenty of pumpkin-spice love these days. It may sound strange, but when I tasted the honey mustard spread, I immediately thought of butternut squash. Weird, yes, but SO tasty! To help yourself out  this week, I recommend making (or buying) a batch of roasted butternut squash one night so all you have to do for lunch prep is throw all the ingredients onto a whole wheat tortilla, wrap, and go!

wrap

Originally I envisioned this as a vegetarian sandwich, but after a friend recommended using sausage as the sausage-mustard combo is usually a ballpark hit, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head. So, keeping with the Fall theme, I bought some pre-cooked (again, trying to cut back on prep time) maple chicken sausage, which I highly recommend using. If eating the sandwich in the comfort of your own home, I recommend heating the sausage in the microwave before assembling your sandwich. But if you are packing lunch to take on the go, it tastes great cold as well!

Finally, for a little nutrition boost, I added a handful of raw baby spinach; however, if you have a spinach allergy or can’t stand the stuff, any baby greens would go well in this. So that’s it! 5 ingredients and only about 10 minutes (if you prepare your squash ahead of time) stand between you and a delicious lunch 🙂

So here’s a toast to good eats this weekend!
