Food parcel give-away! (+winner)

Open-face sandwiches have long been a popular staple, but would benefit from a bit of creativity every now and then – which is why, when Rügenwalder Mühle approached me with a request of that nature, I decided to test different variations and serve them as lovingly and festively as possible,  

You can implement my ideas perfectly at a New Year’s day brunch. 
Or on the day after Christmas as a late breakfast. 
Or simply any time!

The special thing about it: 
This time the cold cuts as well as the ham (Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker) that I used are all vegetarian – featuring the usual quality, without flavor enhancing ingredients, colorants or gluten and 100% free of lactose and meat. 
With regard to taste, however, you cannot distinguish them from real cold cuts! 

I realized all recipes entirely with the vegetarian varieties, but naturally you can opt for any other ham or cold cut variety, depending on your preference.

1. Toasted whole wheat baguette topped with home-made hummus, leafy greens, vegetarian ham with chives (Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker) and fresh cucumbers. 

2. Toasted Ciabatta topped with arugula, vegetarian Mortadella (Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker), and a tomato-basil salsa. 
This is accompanied by some buffalo mozzarella drizzled with highest-quality olive oil. 

3. Toasted pretzel baguette with a home-made herbed quark/Greek yogurt and topped with vegetarian ham with colorful bell peppers (Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker)  and fresh radishes. 

Here is the how-to:

1. Hummus:
1 can of garbanzo beans(15 oz)
1 garlic clove
5 Tbsp plain yogurt  
juice of one whole lemon 
1 Tbsp cumin
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp olive oil

Mix everything in a blender and season to taste. 

Toast slices of bread (toaster or oven grill), spread with hummus, top with salad leaves and the vegetarian ham with chives, garnish with sprouts. 
Place a small bowl of hummus on a small wooden board and serve with freshly chopped cucumber. 

2. Tomato-basil salsa
one handful of small cocktail tomatoes 
one handful of fresh basil leaves 
3-4 Tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper

Cut the tomatoes into quarters, chiffonade the basil, mix both with olive oil and season. 

Toast slices of ciabatta, top with arugula and vegetarian Mortadella (Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker),as well as tomato salsa.  
On a small plate lightly cut up half a buffalo mozarella, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh basil leaves. 

Serve the rest of the tomato salsa at the side along with a small fork.  

3. Herbed quark/Greek yogurt
1 tub quark (German dairy product; alternatively plain Greek yogurt)
1 handful of fresh herbs, such as parsley, chives etc., minced 
1/3 cup whipping cream 
salt, pepper

Mix all ingredients until smooth.  

Toast pretzel baguette, spread with herbed Quark/yogurt, top with salad, vegetarian ham with colorful bell peppers(Rügenwalder Mühle Schinkenspicker), and radishes. Serve alongside some extra herbed yogurt and radishes.
