Move over avocado toast, there’s a new kid on the block, HUMMUS TOAST.
That’s right friends. Now I know many of us are avocado lovers here and avocado toast has been buzzing around all year in 2018, but it’s a new year and time to broaden our horizons with a different kind of toast that I know will become your new obsession for the year.

Health Benefits of Hummus
2018 was the year of the avocado…and let’s be honest, so was the year before that and the year before that. We all know how great avocados are for you, but did you know how great hummus is for you?
Hummus is full of plant-based protein, is full of nutrients that fight inflammation, and is high in fiber because of the shell on the chickpeas. Like all plant-based foods, hummus can help lower cholesterol helping out all our hearts and hummus has a low glycemic index, which will help to keep you full and keep you from having a big drop in blood sugar – say hello to not grabbing that cookie from the break room! But something else that cannot be overlooked, hummus is dairy free, gluten free and nut free, so it can be easily served to anyone!

How to make hummus toast:
Step 1: Put hummus on toast. your done.
You’ll want to start off with a hearty grain or seed bread. Today I’m using a whole-grain organic Kamut bread. (Which has a super nutty flavour, SO GOOD.) Other good options would be a multigrain bread, Ezekiel bread or if needed a seeded gluten-free bread.

After the hummus, there are so many different types of topping options but today we’re sticking with my 3 favourites:
- Hummus toast with sliced avocado & black sesame seeds
- Hummus toast with roasted chickpeas and za’atar spice
- Hummus toast with mixed-seed blend
A few notes on the recipe:
So this hummus toast 3 ways is a rather simple recipe, which is perfect when you need an easy and healthy breakfast in the morning.
The only real cooking involved here, is making the roasted chickpeas. To do this you’ll start with a can of organic chickpeas, and roast them in the oven for about 30 minutes. If you’re looking to have a quick start to your day in the morning, then I’d definitely recommend making the roasted chickpeas the night before and storing them in a container to use as you please!
If there are any additional toppings you’d love to add to these toasts then go for it! Here are so great options:
- Chia seeds
- Crumbled feta cheese
- Thinly sliced radishes
- Sliced tomatoes
- sautéed mushrooms
- any type of spices you love
Endless possibilities here! I hope you enjoy the recipe! xoPrint
