Cucumber Hummus Avocado Toast

This is definitely not a real recipe, per se, but it is most certainly a thing. A delicious thing. A delicious thing that must be shared.

Avocado toast is one of my very favorite lunches. And while I don’t think I could ever bore of just plain mashed, perfectly ripened avocado on a warm, toasty slice of bread and sprinkled with a little coarse salt, sometimes I just can’t help but mix it up. It’s a weakness.

And so I decided to add hummus to the mix. And fresh-sliced cukes. And a little drizzle of olive oil. And salt and pepper. Cucumber Hummus Avocado Toast. Oh, friends. This is definitely a thing.

Other than just being freaking delicious, this little meal-on-a-slice is also awesome because it basically constitutes a well-balanced meal. Fat from the avocado? Carbs from the bread? Protein from the hummus? B-vitamins from the cucumbers? You got it, sister.

And so that’s why, today, I’m sharing avocado toast. Sometimes the simplest things are the very best things.

    I love this recipe! It’s so simple, but I bet it’s delicious. I find that my most easiest recipes or the ones with the least ingredients taste the best! And avocado on anything is amazing!!! Definitely will try with hummus for some extra protein!

      I was kind of like … should I *really* post a “recipe” for avocado toast?! But hey, people (including me) love the super-easy ideas too, so why not. :) Thanks Ceara!
