Hearty Hummus Toast with Avocado, Arugula, and Pistachios

You can top it any way you like, but the combination of rich avocado, fresh arugula, and crunchy radishes and pistachios really hits the mark. And don’t be shy with the salt and pepper. It helps the flavors pop.

The picture shows this recipe with plain hummus, but there are many flavors of dairy-free hummus that would be delicious. You can use a store-bought roasted red pepper or roasted garlic hummus, or go with a homemade version. Some tasty recipes that work well on this hummus toast are Olive Hummus, Artichoke Hummus, and Beet Hummus.
