You’ll Never Eat Boring Avocado Toast Again After Trying This Spiced-Up Recipe

I really like toast, usually avocado with a nice lemon, red pepper, and olive oil drizzle but I know it can get a bit boring. So this week I opted for a dressed up, jazzed up, and spiced up sandwich pairing avocado AND my new favorite Roots Hummus, leading me to a 2-Minute Lima Bean Avocado Toast.

Why hummus and avocado? Well with a very generous delivery from Roots Hummus sitting on my countertop and avocados screaming my name – it was time for a sandwich party. The Roots Lima Bean hummus stood out of the crowd, so I smeared it over half of a slice of toasty sprouted grain bread and left the other half for my beloved avocado. What’s great about this toast-wich is that 1) you can keep it as toast or make it a full-on sandwich and 2) it’s got protein, fiber, omegas, and flavor.

Win, win, and win again.
