Rate This Recipe

Looking for a new way to enjoy hummus for breakfast? Hummus toast it is! Just like my avocado toast, peanut butter toast, and ricotta toast, this is all about ALL the different ways you can enjoy hummus on toast, with plenty of other toppings and additions. It’s less of a recipe and more a mega list of ideas and inspiration.

And if you love morning meals, be sure to try my breakfast charcuterie board, brown sugar oatmeal, sourdough French toast, or steak egg and cheese bagel next time – along with an iced espresso, sweet cream cold foam, or lavender latte, of course.

Ingredients to make hummus toast

How to Make Hummus and Avocado Toast

The simple toast “recipe” is this:

  • Toast bread. You can toast bread in a toaster or place bread that is buttered or brushed with olive oil in a hot skillet until golden brown.
  • Prep ingredients. Cut avocado in half with a knife and carefully remove pit. Thinly slice with a knife. Thinly slice radish.
  • Assemble toast. Spread a thick layer of hummus on toast and top with sliced avocado and sliced radish. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil, flaky sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper.

TIP: I like to choose one or two toppings from each category above – you can keep it super simple, mix-and-match flavors, or try one of the combinations below.

Is hummus good for breakfast?

Absolutely! There is no reason that hummus for breakfast can’t be delicious and I think toast is the ultimate vehicle to make it happen.

Hummus toast vs avocado toast – what’s the difference?

Well, they are definitely different, though both totally delicious and nutritious. Hummus toast starts with a base of hummus (plus other toppings if desired) and avocado toast starts with a base of avocado (plus other toppings if desired) and because both are delicious, we’re combining the two in this hummus and avocado toast!

How many calories in hummus toast?

The calories in hummus toast will vary based on the bread, hummus, and the toppings. A basic toast with hummus with bread, hummus, and a drizzle of olive oil  has around 300 calories, but again, can vary greatly based on what you make it with.

What to Serve with Hummus Toast

It depends on when you’re having it. I’m sharing some ideas for both breakfast and lunches:
