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
- 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.
