Mediterranean Veggie Hummus Toast is my homage to one of my favorite sandwiches I enjoy at a local cafe. It starts with the goodness of whole grains from Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends bread then it's topped with a wonderful veggie combination for a nutritious vegetarian snack or light lunch anyone can enjoy!
While out shopping last week, I was excited to find some new Pepperidge Farms® breads to try on my grocer's shelves. I've been a Pepperidge Farms® fan for a long time. I love how they double wrap their breads for freshness.
I picked up a loaf of Harvest Blends Seeded Grain to try. My first impression of this bread was a very positive one. The bread has a soft texture but also has a great crunch from the seeds. This bread is not your ordinary whole grain bread, it's so much better! My husband, who has pretty much sworn off all whole grain breads, actually enjoyed this bread and requested I use it for his lunch sandwiches. That said volumes to me on the taste and texture. In fact, my whole family enjoyed this bread from using it for sandwiches to making toast in the mornings!
When I tasted Harvest Blends Seeded Grain bread, I couldn't stop thinking about how perfect it would taste if I used it in a re-created veggie sandwich I love, but I thought a 'toast" would be more fun! Toasts are all the rage right now and Harvest Blends is hearty enough to stand up to a lot of toppings. I knew I could pile on the veggies, just the way I like it!
This Mediterranean Veggie Hummus Toast starts with a perfectly toasted slice of Harvest Blends bread slathered with your favorite store-bought hummus or you can use your own homemade hummus (it's very easy). You can even get creative and use flavored hummus. There are so many great flavors out there right now to choose from.
This toast is super easy to make. Once the toasted bread is spread with your hummus of choice, simply top it with some thinly sliced veggies for an easy savory wholesome afternoon snack...or breakfast...or light lunch! You can also add another slice of toasted bread on top for a whole sandwich, if you like!
Harvest Blends breads come in three varieties and are all delicious in their own rights. There is a Seeded Grain, a Sprouted Grain and an Ancient Grain variety. They are all made from wholesome ingredients without using high fructose corn syrup and they are all currently available in the Great Lakes region of the Midwest.
