The Mediterranean diet is one that a lot of doctors recommend eating, mainly because it’s primarily filled with plant foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts.
After my obsession with my Sweet & Spicy Avocado Toast, I wanted to see if I could create something just as satisfying to eat but with a Mediterranean feel. Since I’m a BIG fan of hummus, and just made a big batch of my classic hummus recipe, I thought to get a little more creative, so here is the Mediterranean Toast. I usually just use hummus as a dip for my veggies, but this is another easy and, of course, tasty way to enjoy it!
Diet is all about balance and choosing the most nutritious choices for your body. Bread isn’t something I indulge in often, but I do like to live a little and have my occasional bread. For this recipe I used Ezekiel bread!
This toast is perfect to use it as a snack or after a work out for extra protein and nutrient-dense carbohydrates.Print
