  • 3 cups carrots (Baby carrots worked well, but you can use larger carrots if you want)
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 Tbsp cooking oil (such as grapeseed)

Cilantro Lime Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cup Hellman's vegan mayo
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves (no stems)
  • 1-2 jalapenos, roughly chopped (remove seeds for less spice)
  • 1/2 oz tequila
  • Juice of 2-3 limes

  • Arugula
  • Cucumber
  • Pickled red onions


  1. Preheat & prep: Preheat oven to 450 F. Wash, peel and remove stems from carrots. If using baby carrots, wash only. Cut into similar sizes if needed. Toss with olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper, and place on sheet pan. Roast for 25-35 mins or until easily pierce-able with a fork.
  2. Make cilantro lime sauce: Meanwhile, blend all cilantro lime sauce ingredients until smooth.
  3. Build sandwich: Slather some hummus on one side of the bread, and cilantro lime sauce on the other. Put carrots on top of hummus side with pickled red onions, and cucumbers on cilantro lime side, Add arugula, put the sides together, and enjoy!
