Avocado Hummus toast

20170724_101715-01

This simple vegan hummus-avocado toast is perfect for breakfast or lunch! Multigrain toast topped with good-for-you toppings ready in under 5 minutes, what could be better!
I seriously could not stop eating it and I didn’t have to feel guilty about it since it’s a healthy dip.

Chickpeas are a great vegan fiber and protein source. Adding avocado adds some heart healthy fat to your hummus and will lighten it up a bit so your not eating pure protein.

I basically toast the bread, mash the avocados with minced garlic, chickpea, lime, cilantro, pepper and salt. Add Prosciutto-Ham, tomatoes, and parsley. If you’d like the avocado flavor to shine through more you can reduce the tahini slightly but if you want it to have more of a traditional hummus flavor leave it as it is.

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 oz) can chick peas, well drained
  • 2 medium ripe avocados , cored and peeled 
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil , plus more for serving if desired
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp tahini
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic , peeled
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro leaves

Instructions

Pulse chick peas, olive oil, tahini, lime juice, and garlic in a food processor until smooth, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I did a scant 1/2 tsp salt and about 1/8 tsp pepper), avocados and pulse mixture until smooth and creamy, about 1 – 2 minutes longer.
