Nut & Seed Hummus Toast For Breakfast!

I'm a big believer in breakfast. Most important meal of the day. I go to sleep at night thinking about how excited I am to wake up and eat breakfast. I prefer savory things over sweet things most of the time — tofu scrambles, PB & Marmite toast, noochy oats, Indian pudla, cheezy grits. Except for smoothies. I have sweet fruity protein smoothies three days a week.

But I do tend to fall into breakfast ruts, eating the same things over and over. Well, I recently found a new recipe for the breakfast rotation. I had some leftover hummus and some sprouted grain bread, and I knew I wanted to combine those for a quick breakfast. But I didn't want just hummus and toast. I needed something else.

So I did what anyone would do. I googled "hummus toast for breakfast." And I stumbled onto this simple recipe from The Minimalist Baker for Seedy Hummus Toast. I didn't have enough sunflower seeds to make a full serving, so I subbed out walnuts, and a new favorite breakfast was born — Nut & Seed Hummus Toast.

It's so simple you don't even need a recipe, but here ya go. It's my adaptation of the Minimalist Baker recipe.

Nut & Seed Hummus Toast

2 slices sprouted grain bread
1 Tbsp. walnut pieces
1 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp. hummus (any flavor)
1 Tbsp. raw hemp seed

Toast the bread in a toaster or in the oven.

In a dry skillet, toast the walnuts and sunflower seeds over medium heat, stirring often to prevent burning. They're done with they start to smell fragrant.

Spread the hummus over both slices of toast. Top with hemp seeds and toasted sunflower seeds and walnuts.

Yum! I love hummus at breakfast time too as I also prefer a savoury breakfast. I've just remembered I have some hummus in the fridge, so I'll be having that tomorrow morning! :)
