Oil-Free Hummus, Tomato and Pea Toasties

Plant-based oil-free hummus, tomato and pea toasties.

Simple meals are a blessing don’t you agree? In as much as I enjoy cooking, it’s always nice to eat a meal that doesn’t take longer than 10 minutes to put together. And when it comes to simplicity, not very many meals beat toast.

To be honest, I’m not a huge bread fan unless I’m eating straight from the oven. I mean, who can resist the delicious aroma of fresh bread?

I don’t bake my bread, and I don’t have a bakery close to me, so I don’t have bread often. I can go months without it. But since I learned that Tuesdays are dedicated to toast posts on Instagram, I’ve convinced myself to eat bread at least once a week.

Lol! At least I’m being honest right?

You may already know that I eat an oil-free diet. I’m not 100% oil-free, around 95% to be more precise. The 5% accounts for times when I eat out at restaurants or when I buy ready-made sauces, snacks or treats that contain oil.

Once I discovered just how easy it is to make hummus, I stopped buying it. You’d be amazed at the amount of hummus you can get from one can of chickpeas. You can also adjust the flavours to suit your taste buds or incorporate ingredients like beets, chilli, cumin or avocados to make it more fun and delicious.

One of the best things about hummus is that it is so easy to digest. I often forget that I’ve had legumes whenever I eat them because I don’t get all the usual.. ahem.. unpleasant side-effects that come with eating them whole. If you’ve never tried hummus, you should give it go. It makes a great dip for chips too.
