Get ready to start your day off with something extra delicious and downright tasty my friends.
Instead of reaching for the avocado toast like you usually do, isn’t it time to shake things up?
It’s time to introduce you to HUMMUS TOAST.

When it comes to starting the day off on thick and hearty multigrain bread, I am always down. Usually I am slicing avocados or topping it with jam/peanut butter. But now I am a convert to the hummus world.
This particular recipe is what I like to call a fancy schmancy way to start the day.
You start with that bread that you know and love. I personally like the thinner loaves so I can be eating a couple of slices instead of just one… Whatever kind you want to eat, you choose!
Then comes the hummus, which of course as you well know, for me that means anything Sabra. I highly recommend using Sabra’s Roasted Garlic Hummus for this recipe because it brings a hearty and rustic flair to the dish. It also pairs really well with the vegetables in the next piece of the puzzle that is this deceivingly simple breakfast.
However, you can totally use any kind of Sabra hummus that you like, from Classic to Roasted Red Pepper, Pine Nut to Lemon Twist. It all goes well with this breakfast recipe!
After you slather on the hummus, there’s the quick and easy ratatouille sauté which includes eggplant, zucchini, squash, and tomatoes. It’s a quick and dirty way to make ratatouille. However, it has all the flavors of the classic recipe in a chunkier preparation.
Also, side note, anytime I make ratatouille or eat it, I always think of “Ratatouille.” I will always love that movie from& now until forever. Best. Pixar Ever. Don’t even try to fight me on that.
Once the ratatouille is piled up on top, you top it with fluffy soft scrambled eggs. This is where the magic comes in when it comes to texture. You get a layer of soft and pillowy, then chewy and chunky, then creamy and spreadable, and finally tons of grains embedded in tender bread.
OMG it is just SO FREAKING BANGING. Hummus toast FTW.
If you can’t get your hands on Sabra hummus, that’s no problem! I have a homemade greek hummus recipe that works fantastic with this recipe.
This Recipe’s Must-Haves
For all the knife cuts that you’ll need from bread to veggies, I love all my Shun knives. If you need a couple to add to your knife block, I highly recommend the Shun Classic 9-Inch Bread Knife and the Shun Classic 8-Inch Chef’s Knife. I use these almost every single day in the kitchen!
I have had this CuisinarChef’s Classic Nonstick Hard-Anodized 5-1/2-Quart Saute Pan FOREVER. It is still in awesome condition and it works wonders with dishes like this one!
Finally, the OXO Good Grips Wooden Corner Spoon & Scraper that I always talk about is always worth adding to your utensil jar.
