Orange hummus....

I'll be honest, when I saw this hummus in TJ's I was hesitant. I gave it a try and it loved it so much I had it for breakfast for 3 days straight. No shame. 

Simple ingredients: 

  • 1 ripe avocado 
  • cilantro 
  • lemon 
  • everything seasoning (can be found at Trader Joe's) 
  • bread of your choice (we used a multigrain sourdough)

Get your BEETS on....

I used to hate beets so much as a kid. Despised them. 

This combo may be adventurous for some but it melds together quite nicely!

What you need: 

  • Love Beets (vinegar flavor, found at Whole Foods)
  • basil 
  • cherry tomatoes
  • your fave garlic hummus or make your own 
  • salt and pepper

Fall on Toast...

I was inspired by Purely Elizabeth's new nut butter granolas. Everyone loves a good autumn like toast! Be sure to buy just the pumpkin puree, not filling.

What you need: 

  • fave granola (Purely Elizabeth is a wonderful option)
  • raw chopped walnuts 
  • 1 can of pumpkin puree
  • alternative sugar 
  • maple syrup 
  • almond butter 
  • cinnamon 
  • nutmeg 
  • sliced apple 
  • slice of your choice of bread

For the pumpkin mixture: in a bowl combine 1/2 cup or less of puree, a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and 2 tbsp of an alternative sugar. I just used a dash of maple syrup to lightly sweeten the puree. Optional: A dollop of almond butter

Green Goddess...

So fresh, so clean. I love the simplicity of this toast & can we talk about the gorgeous color? This is basically a toast made with any green edible thing you have lying around in your fridge. Dark leafy green, buttery avocado and a squeeze of citrus. It's like a green juice on toast - except you get bread!!!

What you need: 

  • 1 avocado
  • half of a cucumber
  • basil
  • cilantro 
  • tomatoes
  • lime
  • ground mustard seed
  • salt & pepper
  • big slice of bread

for the avo base: I combined 1 tsp of ground mustard seed, a dash of salt & pepper, and of course a little squeeze of lime. The mustard seed definitely ups the game and you can finsih it off with a pinch of turmeric.

Fiesta on Toast...

Simply put, it's a taco on toast!

Beans are the base and then you can go wild from there. make it extra spicy, mild, plain. Do your thing and have a ball. 

What you need: 

  • refried beans
  • 1 avocado
  • cilantro
  • favorite salsa 
  • chili powder 
  • cumin
  • tomatoes (optional, Jared is a tomato hater)

That's the end folks. This goes to show that you can make anything vegan and still have a good time while doing it. Also, happy World Vegan Month!

Show me how you get fancy with your toast on Instagram or Facebook.
