Hummus Toast Topping Ideas

Hummus Toast Toppings

I’m surprised how long it took me to discover hummus bread and hummus toast after I fell in love with the bean-based dip/spread (all the way back in college), but I’m making up for lost time now…

If you’ve hung around these parts for a while, you know I’m a big fan of amped up toasts and crackers. I’ve shared 5 Ways to Eat Sweet Potato Toast and 5 Rice Cake Topping Ideas.

All these recipes combine my need for protein and, hopefully, a fruit or veggie, with a bit of carbs for the perfect snack or part of a meal.

These toppings for hummus toast are along the same lines with switched up flavor combinations…

Hummus Bread

The potential of hummus bread toppings knows no end – just your imagination! Below are my go tos, but I feel like I’m always stirring up other options.

What’s the difference between hummus bread and hummus toast? Why, just the toasting of the bread, of course. It’s up you. The topping combinations work either way!

Avocado & Fresh Basil Hummus Toast

I’m a huge fan of avocado toast; I mean what’s not to love? But it seems as though the internet and restaurants are a bit saturated with the whole phenomenon.

I’m not ready to give up my avocado yet, but I love it paired with fresh herbs (basil here, but cilantro for a Mexican flavor would be just as delicious).

The flavor of avocados is easily enhanced with salt and fresh pepper and I always like to sprinkle some chili flakes. Other tasty toppings are cumin, garlic salt, chili powder, etc.

Hummus Toast with nuts and raisins

Raisin & Nut Hummus Toast

I always think of hummus as a savory option but wanted to come up with something on the slightly sweeter side. I wasn’t totally sure how this mix would turn out, but it might just be my favorite.

Finely chop about a quarter cup salted pistachios and raw almonds. Drop a few raisins on top and drizzle with honey. This would be a great option for breakfast, a snack, or something to satisfy your sweet tooth! Yes, you CAN eat hummus for breakfast!

Roasted Bell Pepper & Chia Seed Toast

Have you had a chia seed kick yet? I come and go with them. Ground or whole, they’re great additions to a lot of meals though. I’ve been adding them to my morning yogurt parfait and to my snacks (like my homemade Ritz peanut butter crackers).

I added them to roasted bell peppers here for a bit of crunch. You could use poppy, sesame, or flax seeds just as easily!

Cucumber & Everything Seasoning Hummus Toast

If there is one random recipe from blogging that may have been my most brilliant moment, it was making up a batch of everything bagel seasoning.

I don’t eat many bagels, but I LOVE that flavor combination and it adds so much deliciousness to the most basic of snacks.

This cucumber everything hummus toast is full of flavor and it comes together unbelievably fast – great for those moment when you just need to eat!

Hummus Recipes

Making hummus at home is SO easy and only requires a few ingredients.

If you want to take a stab at making your own hummus – try this Basil Hummus, this tasty roasted eggplant hummus, or this Sweet Potato Hummus.

They’re all easy and so good on toast or as a side appetizer.

How to Store Hummus

Whether or not you opt to make your own hummus, help your hummus stay fresh for longer by storing it in your refrigerator in a tightly closed container. You want to keep all moisture out to avoid any spoilage.

If you have extra and want to freeze it, hummus freezes well and will defrost overnight in the refrigerator.

If you just need every meal served on a lovely piece of toast, try this smoked salmon toastspicy avocado toast, a tuna tartare tartine for two, beautiful radish toast, some ricotta and zucchini toast, or this ceviche avocado toast!

On the sweeter side, this blood orange crostini is positively perfect! One loaf of bread and you’re set for the week on meals!

Can you Eat Hummus For Breakfast?

Yes. For more savory options, just spread or toast. TO make it sweeter, add toppings such as raisins, honey, and cinnamon.

What kind of bread do you serve with hummus?

Pita bread is the traditional option to serve with hummus, but it tastes good with just about any bread. I prefer a whole wheat or seeded bread.

Can you Freeze Hummus?

Yes. Freeze hummus in a sealed container. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator.

Hummus toast is avocado toast’s lesser known cousin. If you love hummus (I certainly do!), then you’ll love it on a piece of tasty toast topped with any one of these topping combinations. The fruit and seed combination sounds weird, I know, but don’t knock it til you try it!
