Mediterranean Toasts

Hummus makes me happy. Especially lemon hummus! If you are a hummus fan, too, then you will really love my Mediterannean Toasts. A thin layer of hummus, topped with fresh cucumber, roasted bell pepper, and olive mash, all on a crispy toasted brown rice english muffin... mmmmmm!

  • 1 brown rice gluten free english muffin, halved down the middle
  • 2 tablespoons lemon hummus
  • 4 round thin cucumber slices
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 4 olives of your favorite variety
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
Makes 2 toasts.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place english muffin halves in the oven to toast for 10 minutes, or until desired crispy-ness.
  3. Meanwhile, slice bell pepper in halve, then remove the seeds, core, and stem
  4. Distribute pepper halves on a non stick tray, and place under broiler for 10 minutes, flipping halveway through.
  5. Take your olives, remove pits, and mash them up with a fork until a chunky spread forms.
  6. Spread 1 tablespoon of hummus on 1 piece of toast, top with 2 cucumber slices, 1 bell pepper halve, and your olive spread. Sprinkle with black pepper to taste. Repeate with remaining ingredients.
Is this something you would try? I'd love to hear!
