In my book, a savory breakfast toast--Mediterranean-style, of course-- is the perfect way to start the day! Loaded with hummus, veggies and other Mediterranean favorites, it is a healthy, nutrition-packed and super satisfying breakfast...plus, DELICIOUS! Be sure to check out all my tips and ideas for the perfect savory breakfast toast.

A few weeks back, we talked about what a Mediterranean diet breakfast looks like. And I've since heard from many of you asking for more quick Mediterranean breakfast ideas. My answer? Grab some hummus!
It's no secret that I'm a big fan of hummus. If you stop by my house at any point in time, I'd probably whip up a bowl of roasted garlic hummus to get us started. But equally exciting to me is a simple breakfast toast slathered with plain hummus and loaded with veggies, olives, and maybe a sprinkle of za'atar and good feta.
I make these savory breakfast toast with hummus on a regular basis. They're convenient, nutrition-packed, and very filling. And let's get this out there right now, if you don't feel like dirtying your food processor, no sweat. A good store-bought hummus works great here.
Ready to get on the savory breakfast toast wagon? I've got a few tips for you...
Breakfast Toast Tips and Ideas
1.To get the most out of your breakfast toast, be sure to use a hearty and healthy bread like an organic whole grain or whole wheat bread. One slice is often enough if you're eating quality nutrition-packed bread. If you don't want to use bread, make sweet potato toast as an alternative!
2. To make savory breakfast toast on the fly any given morning, just have your veggies and other toppings prepped and refrigerated in air-tight glass containers. I like to store mine in small separate containers.
3- Breakfast toast variations...the possibilities are endless! You can use traditional hummus; roasted red pepper hummus; garlic hummus (or try any of these ready hummus flavors!) And take the opportunity to use up veggies you already have on hand. I often have cucumbers and tomatoes, so that's what I used here. You can use other raw vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, avocado (technically a fruit), or even leftover roasted veggies!
If you need more protein, add a boiled egg or shredded rotisserie chicken on top (heck, I've even done leftover chicken shawarma!)
If you're looking for an alternative to hummus toast, try this smoked salmon sandwich, my lighter, vegetable-packed take on lox and bagels.
