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.
Cucumber Hummus Avocado Toast
- 1 slice of multigrain bread
- 1/2 medium avocado
- 1/4 cup of your favorite hummus (I'm partial to this sunbutter hummus)
- 5-6 cucumber slices
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Toast the bread as dark as you like it. Scoop the avocado onto the toast. Mash and spread it with a fork. Spread the hummus over the avocado, then lay the cucumbers on top. Drizzle with a little olive oil and finish with a light sprinkle of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Sometimes the simplest things really are the best – this looks just up my street! And lovely photos too…
Thank you so much! 🙂
I tried this today and loved, loved, loved it. How can we find out how many calories are in it. I’m trying to find a healthy way to eat and lose weight. Thanks so much.
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!
Thanks Maria! 😀
