How to Make Everything Hummus Toast
By now, we've all had avocado toast. But have you added hummus toast to your breakfast routine yet? The meal is so easy to put together, and it's incredibly delicious and filling. It's a staple meal in my house.
The first step to making the toast is a really good and hearty slice of whole-grain bread. Of course, if you're making multiple servings grab a couple of slices of bread.
How to shop for this? When you’re looking at a bread’s ingredient list, check that the first ingredient is a flour containing the word “whole.” This could be whole-wheat flour, whole-grain flour, or oat flour, for example. You’ll occasionally find that flour is the second ingredient, with water as the first ingredient—and this is fine.
Then look at the bread’s nutrition label. You want a bread that’s a good source of filling fiber, so this means it should offer at least 3 grams of fiber per slice. Also look for ample protein in your bread, so choose a loaf with at least 4 grams of protein per slice.
The last thing you’ll want to check is the bread’s added sugar content. Ideally, the bread won’t contain any added sugar—but if it does, you’re looking for a slice with 3 grams or less sugar.
Putting the Final Touches on Your Toast with Hummus
Next up is the main ingredient of the meal: hummus! I recommend store-bought hummus for easy meals. I love plain hummus but the flavored variety is delicious, too! So really, choose whatever type you’re craving.
As a vegetarian, hummus is a staple in my diet because it provides fueling fiber and protein to help keep me satiated for longer—meaning I’m less likely to feel “hangry.”
Plus, hummus is a staple of the Mediterranean diet, a major trend this year and a fantastic way of eating that research has tied to weight loss, better heart health, and lower risk of diabetes. See other top healthy foods trends.
Hummus Toast Recipe Toppings
Next comes the really fun part: toppings! You can add any of your favorite ingredients to your hummus toast. As a dietitian, I recommend including veggies as well as a protein so your breakfast will stick with you for longer.
What goes well with hummus? I topped my creation with radish slices for a mild spicy kick, as well as a soft-boiled egg. I love eggs and hummus together, and I really like how the egg’s yolk mixes with the hummus. But if you prefer a firmer yolk, a hard-boiled, fried egg, or scrambled egg works here, too.
Eggs provide a type of protein that’s really well utilized by the body. They offer many other important nutrients, too, such as eye-helping lutein and zeaxanthin.
Are eggs healthy? Yup! Get the truth about eggs and cholesterol. If you’d like extra veggies, serve your toast with a side salad.
Pro Tip for Soft Boiling Eggs
Once the eggs are finished cooking, remove them with a slotted spoon and place them immediately in an ice or cool-water bath.
After allowing them to cool for a few minutes, crack the eggs ever so gently on the countertop, then peel them under cold running water.
This will allow your eggs to stay intact, as soft-boiled eggs need to be handled with care.
Additional Topping Ideas
I love jazzing up my meals with fresh herbs, as the simple addition easily adds glam to a dish. So I seasoned my hummus toast with fresh dill sprigs. Then, I topped my creation off with a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning—which makes well, everything, taste even better!
I prefer completing this everything hummus recipe by sprinkling the seasoning on top of the toast. But if you prefer everything mixed together, grab a small bowl and combine the hummus with the seasoning blend.
By the way, I prefer the Trader Joe's version! The garlic and onion combo is so tasty on top of toasted bread and hummus.
Want additional topping ideas? Here you go!
- Red pepper flakes
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Flaked sea salt
- Dried onion flakes
- Dried minced garlic
- Drizzle of olive oil
- Black sesame seeds
- Cream cheese
- Sliced avocado
Hummus and Eggs Benefits
You’ll see that this toast is an excellent source of both protein and fiber—and it's low in sugar, too.
All these things together will help your blood sugar levels stay stable throughout the a.m. and help keep you satiated and focused for whatever your morning hours may bring.
Now, let’s get you a plate of hummus toast! Enjoy it for breakfast or for a healthy snack. What's next up? A hummus bagel? Yum!
