Ultimate Toast Toppers

I absolutely love toast and flatbreads – you probably know that right? I thought it would be fun to create a post with some of my favourite toppings – I mean the combinations are endless but I think these are super special. 

My first – Pea mash with broad beans and tahini – This topping is green heaven – you can whip up the gorgeous pea mash in seconds and even better with some extra greens – broad beans and green tahini dressing. 

And how about – Harissa with dukka – Spread some of my amazing homemade Harissa paste and top with crunchy dukka – amazing. The Harissa isn’t too spicy but if you’ve added extra chillis you can stir in some plantbased yogurt. 

Or – Creamy butter bean hummus with roast tomatoes –  One of my classic and favourite toppers – smooth and creamy butter bean hummus and gooey popping roast cherry tomatoes – simple pleasures.

Bread options; Sourdough,  Flatbreads,  Soda bread

Other delicious toppings; Beetroot hummus Classic hummus Red pepper dip

I really hope you enjoy these! Let me know and tag me if you make them – I’d love to know what you think.

Much love, Niki xxx
