Avocado Hummus Toast with Dill and Za’atar
Creamy avocado hummus toast with hemp seeds, fresh dill and za’atar seasoning is a flavorful and healthy lunch that only takes 5 minutes to make!
Finally, something GREEN!
I felt like we needed it after all of the booze, chocolate and pie around here lately. Or at least my hips needed it.
By the way, how many weeks do we have until summer? Lemme check real quick. Be right back.
Less than six! That means I need to get on more of the green recipes PRONTO.
So what do you know about avocado toast? I feel like there has been an unspoken trend with it this year. Or maybe it was spoken and I just missed it. I don’t know. But I keep seeing it everywhere and I’m like, man, I want some! I LOVE avocados.
It would definitely be one of the few foods I would have to take with me if I were stranded on an island somewhere. Actually that sounds pretty nice right about now. As long as I had avocados and Wilson, I think I’d be just fine.
Just kidding, Brandon. I’d have to have you there too. And Coco. And maybe some mango.
Anyways, if you guys haven’t jumped on the avocado toast train yet, this combination would be the perfect place to start. Using store bought hummus makes it super quick to throw together. I personally love Whole Food’s Lemon or Greek hummus- both of them go great with the fresh dill and za’atar which give it a delicious Mediterranean flavor that really takes it over the top.
In case you’re wondering what za’atar is, it’s a Middle Eastern spice comprised of dried herbs such as thyme and/or oregano, sumac, sesame seeds and salt. You can find it premade in the spice section at most grocery stores or you can make your own. Either way, it’s a great spice to have on hand as you can use it on almost anything. Grilled veggies, sauces, dips, the sky is the limit!
I also added some green onion for extra veggie power and hemp seeds for an additional boost of protein. The whole thing is so easy to make I feel guilty even writing it as a recipe but it’s just too good not to share. It’ll definitely be a repeat lunch in my house for the rest of the summer. Enjoy, friends!
