Hummus is good for more than just bowls and snacks. If you’re looking for a new plant-based breakfast idea that’s anything but boring, try hummus toast!

I make hummus toast for breakfast more often than anything else, so I thought it was about time I shared my favorite breakfast on the blog.

While hummus and toast are great as is, adding avocado makes the meal even more satisfying and makes you feel like you’re out to a fancy brunch instead of making breakfast at home before you hit work.

Avocado hummus toast is a great breakfast option because it contains carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats. The combination of these three elements helps keep you fuller for longer.

What will you need

Avocado, hummus, and bread are the only ingredients you really need to make this hummus toast, but a few extra ingredients will take the toast to the next level!

Labeled ingredients.
  • Avocado: Choose a large ripe avocado. I use half an avocado for toast, so you’ll have leftovers for the next day or other meals if you choose to eat just one slice of toast.
  • Hummus: I use plain or garlic hummus, but any kind is fine!
  • Pumpkin seedsalso known as pepitas, they add crunch and micronutrients like magnesium. Hemp seeds add healthy fats (they’re a staple for me but entirely optional if you don’t have them on hand).
  • Nutritional yeast adds flavor and supplies vitamin B12.
  • Bread: A bakery-style loaf is best for fancy hummus toast, but any plain toast will do. Most weeks I use whole wheat bread for sandwiches because that’s what I usually have on hand.
  • All bagel seasoning it’s my all-purpose seasoning. I buy mine at Trader Joe’s but it’s easy to make homemade dressing.
  • Rocket adds a spicy flavor and a serving of vegetables.

Recipe steps

Making hummus toast is easy.

For the best quality, enjoy now.

Personalization ideas

  • Hummus: I usually use homemade garlic hummus or homemade jalapeno hummus, but the options are endless here. Try beetroot hummus, white bean curd, or even black-eyed pea hummus.
  • Vegetables: Add sliced ​​bell pepper, sliced ​​radish, or sauteed mushrooms for an extra serving of veggies.
  • Bread: Choose a loaf of bread, gluten-free bread, white bread, etc.
  • Protein: Add a fried egg for extra protein or add air fryer chickpeas for a vegan protein option.
  • Spice: Add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or hot sauce to reheat.
  • Make a sandwich adding another piece of toast. Or use a bagel instead of bread to make a bagel sandwich! I love using all the bagels here.
