While living in London finding places that served avocado on toast was super EASY to find! Now in Calgary, it doesn’t seem to be as popular… It’s actually kind of hard to come by. When you do find it, they serve a rather thin layer of avocado, almost a spread on like butter. Not those big, chunky pieces of avocado like it should be. I do truly find this disappointing as I just LOVE avocado on toast with anything really! While being pregnant this was one of my go-to foods since I had so many diversions… and it’s healthy in my books… it’s a vegetable and protein. 😉 Now that Kensi is here it is super easy to whip up!
INSPIRATION FOR MY AVOCADO ON TOAST WITH PINK HUMMUS
Well there is no shock here… if I can have or make anything look pink I will. Honestly who doesn’t get excited when they look down at their plate and see pink!? I got my inspiration from when I visited the Feya Restaurant in London who had the first pink hummus avocado on toast that I had ever seen. Feya is actually a super instagrammable place that you can find in my ‘A GUIDE TO LONDON INSTAGRAM SPOTS‘ if you want to see where it is located. Not only is the venue super pretty but all their plates are as well. I won’t even attempt to replicate the avocado rose because I know it will fail. Also who has the patience for it. Maybe if I wasn’t starving when I start the process I might get a decent rose but for now let’s keep it simple.
CREATING THE AVOCADO ON TOAST WITH PINK HUMMUS
- Start by blending together the chickpeas, beets (if using previously cooked and frozen beets make sure they are thawed out), garlic, lime juice, tahini and olive oil until it’s all smooth.
- Taste and add salt and pepper to taste and blend once more.
- Toast your bread as desired. Gluten free options can be used as well.
- Pit your avocado and mush it all together in a separate bowl and add salt to desired taste.
- To assemble, add the pink hummus to your bread, then add the avocado on top and garnish with sesame seeds and cut up leafy greens.
There you have it, a super easy breakfast or snack that you can whip up in minutes!
You can cook and freeze beets so they are ready for you when you are. You can read all about that in my ‘PRETTY PINK VEGAN PASTA‘ blog post where I dedicate a whole section on how to freeze cooked beets.

Another thing that I love about this pink hummus is that you can make yourself a large batch and keep it in the fridge. You can have the pink hummus with vegetables or chips. Trust me this pink hummus will impress your guests as well!
This dish is super easy to make gluten free. Nowadays there are tons of options out there for gluten-free bread or even rice crackers that you can use. You can also make your own bread using gluten-free flour to make sure that there is no cross contamination. This is key specially if you’re celiac. Another option is using portobello mushrooms as your bread. I love this combination because the mushroom just adds another level of taste.
Hope you enjoy this avocado on toast with pink hummus recipe, and if you create it and do the rose do share some tips and a picture or two. I would love to see how it turned out for you!
