I know not everyone is a fan of bread, but with so many varieties available (whole wheat, seeded, gluten free, sourdough...) I think there is a type for all of us. I have mentioned before that I don't make a lot of sandwiches, but sometimes bread-based lunches appeal more than my usual grain-based salads. If you join me in trying this open sandwich, I think you'll understand why!
You don't really need a recipe for this, but I list my ingredient quantities below. Basically you add hummus to bread, lentils to the hummus, and tomatoes to top it all off. If you buy hummus and cooked lentils you can have this on the table in under 15 minutes; if you make your own, advance preparation will still leave you with plenty of time at lunch.

A twist on beans on toast and my grilled hummus on toast - healthy comfort food at its lunchtime best!
Serves one, adapt quantities as needed

2 pieces of bread of choice
Approximately 2 tbsp hummus
Approximately 4 tbsp cooked lentils
6 or so cherry tomatoes, cut in half
Toast your bread lightly and then spread each piece with approximately 1 tbsp hummus. Top each piece with approximately 2 tbsp lentils and then the cherry tomatoes.
Place under a medium grill for about 10 minutes, monitoring regularly to avoid over-cooking.
