While tons of people are eating less bread lately, I’m toasting it and topping it with hummus. It makes for such a delicious, protein-packed plant-based snack. Heck, you can even have these for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I think nothing will truly replace avocado toast. But this hummus toast no-recipe recipe is such a winner in my book. It’s as easy as slapping hummus on toast and topping it however you’d like!
How do you make hummus toast
I call this a no-recipe recipe because it’s more of an inspirational post to show you how to put common ingredients together to create something special and tasty. It’s ingredients we know and use all the time coming together in a beautiful way. Growing up in Lebanese house, we only ate hummus with pita. But now I’m all about any and all breads to top my hummus with.
What type of hummus should I use
If you want to make the hummus from scratch, I have the best hummus recipe on my blog. It’s the one I learned from my Lebanese parents and it has only four ingredients. You basically throw chickpeas (peeled if possible), tahini, garlic and lemon juice in a food processor until it’s smooth and creamy. And then you can use it to make hummus toast any time you want.
You can also buy hummus from the grocery store. It’s sold everywhere now and some brands are better than others. It will just depend on your taste preference. But look for ones that have chickpeas, tahini, garlic and lemon juice as the first four ingredient without much else in there. You can use plain hummus, extra garlic hummus, or even go crazy with colorful hummus like roasted red pepper hummus or green herbed hummus.
What type of bread should I use
You can pretty much use any toasted bread. So use what you have and keep it simple. I would recommend that you use thick-sliced bread and toast it. Buy good bread that’s strong enough to hold not only the hummus, but all the glorious toppings you will be adding to your toast. Use something that offers a sturdy base like a thick multi-grain bread, Ezekiel bread or even a gluten-free bread you like.
Then spread the creamy dreamy hummus over the toast, and get ready to be creative with the toppings!

So if you’re convinced you should try recipe but looking for ideas and inspiration on how to top it, check out these ideas. Now I’m a huge cheese fan so two of these ideas are not vegan, but the hummus toast itself is vegan so you can omit the cheese or use plant-based varieties.
