Roast carrot hummus on sourdough

Roast carrot hummus on sourdough

We’re always looking out for cool toast combos. Creamy ricotta, carrot hummus and crunchy pepitas is definitely a winner!


2 slice sourdough bread

2 oz ricotta cheese

¼ cup Roast Carrot Hummus

2 tbsp pepitas, raw


  1. Toast sourdough, spread with a layer of ricotta and then top with a spread of Roast Carrot Hummus. Sprinkle with a few pepitas to serve.


Dairy-free option: Omit ricotta and top bread with a roughly mashed boiled egg.

Gluten-free option: Replace sourdough with a gluten-free loaf

Mexican Lunch Bowl

Mexican Lunch Bowl

I love lunch bowls as a way to break free from sandwiches.  They are so easy to throw together and can be a mix of leftovers from the night before!  This one was inspired by my lunch two weeks ago with my friend at little a restaurant called Karma Cafe...a mexican twist to a Buddha Bowl.  They are vegetarian at the restaurant so I changed the tofu to add chicken in.  Either is a great add-in.

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
