Hummus "Cheesesteak" Hoagies are a great option for a quick weeknight supper. Made with yellow onion, red bell pepper, Polano chile, and provolone cheese, these vegetarian sandwiches are very hearty and filling. Serve with Napa Cabbage Slaw.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Hollow out top and bottom halves of bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Place rolls, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 1 minute or until toasted.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and next 5 ingredients (through black pepper); sauté 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Step 4

Spread about 1/4 cup hummus over bottom half of each roll; top with 1/2 cup onion mixture and 1 cheese slice. Broil 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Top hoagies with top halves of rolls.

These are weird but kinda awesome. We were very skeptical, but somehow it works! Nice meatless alternative to the usual.

I wouldn't say I'd use this for a special occasion, but we certainly do love it! It's a great, easy vegetarian meal. In fact, my 4 year old often asks for it, so it's become a regular in our house. (And we're meat eaters, who love a real Philly Cheesesteak) I use regular hummus for the kids, but a roasted red pepper one for the adults.

We enjoyed the dish very much, even though we're meat lovers and adore the authentic cheesesteak. The flavors were outstanding with the hummus. You can read my full review at:

Tasty with a little kick; I like the use of pablanos instead of green bell peppers. Great for a quick, vegetarian weeknight supper!

This is a very hearty, filling, easy and inexpensive meal. I could easily see substituting any number of vegetables or hummus flavors in the future - it is endlessly adaptable. Will absolutely be making again.
