Table of Contents
With the huge amounts of sweet breakfast ideas out there, the savoury ones are sometimes forgotten about. Because remember, there are serious risks to going savoury.
What happens if you don't like it, and now you've missed out on those banana waffles or chocolate chip pancakes you knew would be delicious. We totally get it.
But, we are here to save your day with this mushroom hummus toast. It's quick, hearty, and full of awesome flavor. We promise you'll have no regrets.
🍲 Key ingredients
- Mushrooms: these lend a savoury flavor and meaty texture, which makes the meal feel more complete. There are currently over 10,000 types of mushrooms, so you'd probably never run out of variations. Not sure how many of those are poisonous though, so we went with brown from Costco to be safe.
- Bread: the type of bread you choose will literally make or break a boujee toast recipe. Do not use flimsy toast. You will regret it. In all seriousness though, sourdough or homemade dairy-free bread works best. It's a source of prebiotics, which help feed the good bacteria in your gut. We actually heard "the more sour the dough, the more boujee the toast."
- Hummus: there's nothing quite like a 1-inch thick smear of hummus all over that sourdough to put you in a better mood. If it fits on the tablespoon, it only counts as one tablespoon, right? We like to use our creamy Moroccan hummus because it's our favorite recipe in the world.
It all starts with sautéing up some mushroom slices in a little oil and liquid aminos. Add in some herbs to make your kitchen smell like Thanksgiving dinner.
Cut a few extra thick slices of bread to toast, then give them a hummus bath and layer on the mushrooms.
We like to add some microgreens on top since they're packed with nutrients, but feel free to add whatever else you like!
Eat your toast immediately because it's best served warm. We wouldn't recommend saving this for later.
💭 Budget tips
