Roasted Red Pepper Hummus Sandwich with roasted Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, and July 4th cookout round up. Vegan

What .. Its July 3rd already.. pfft.
What are our plans for the weekend.. hmmm. I think we will be busy planting trees around our yard to keep some privacy and to keep the noise out.
Then maybe unpacking and organizing, then finding staging and photography for our condo. And then maybe grill up some veggies, tempeh and sandwiches. The work is never-ending I say:) The Condo looks fabulous right now with the new paint and carpet. 
Today, the builder is fixing our hardwood floor at the bottom floor in the house, which started buckling as soon as we moved in(murphy’s law). Probably the sealing between the concrete slab and the floor is leaking moisture.
Any which way, our days are eventful. And I dont even know when I will hit publish on the post :) Started writing it up yesterday night then fell asleep. Now coordinating between all the pending things.

Summer Cookout cannot be complete without..

Grilled Sammies!

This Sandwich pictured above, has Roasted red pepper smoky dip from The Great Vegan Bean book, roasted cauliflower, roasted sweet potato slices and greens. Made with my White Sandwich Bread. The smoky cauliflower, sweet potatoes and the sweet pepper dip makes this a keeper. Roast the veggies, whip up the dip and keep ready. Put the bread slices on the grill, layer the veggies and hummus, grill up and serve.
