Ingredients

  • Classic Hummus:
  • 2 cups drained cooked chickpeas, liquid reserved
  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt to taste
  • Bruschetta Topping:
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 English cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 baguette, sliced

Directions

  1. Blend chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic in a blender, adding reserved chickpea liquid as needed, until the mixture reaches a desired consistency; season with salt. Alternately, put the ingredients into a deep bowl or pot and blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
  2. Mix diced tomato, cucumber, red onion, parsley, and olive oil together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread 1 teaspoon hummus onto each bread slice; spoon tomato mixture onto the hummus.
Mealthy tip:

If you're trying to lower your carb intake, bag the bread, and use this hummus as a topping on cool cucumbers, zucchini slices, or your favorite veggies. This also makes the recipe gluten-free! Sprinkle feta cheese or chopped fresh mozzarella cheese over the top for an extra savory note.

Hummus is one of my favorite healthy things to snack on when I'm on the go. These are a crowd pleaser for sure as folks who are vegetarian and non-veg alike enjoy. I grilled the bread a bit to give an extra crunch.

Classic freshly made hummus with tomatoes and cucumber on bread? Sign me up! I toasted the bread lightly, because I'm a rebel like that, and loved the little bit of extra crunch to give a nice balance to the different textures.
