The last Thursday of February is supposedly #NationalToastDay and that seems like a perfectly good reason to give toast some love. Avocado toast has taken its share of hits in recent years, from olds claiming it keeps millennials from being able to afford houses to youngs asserting it’s an overhyped relic of basic millennial brunch aesthetics. But we are here to speak for avocado toast and remind you of a basic truth: it’s good. And you know what’s even better? When you add hummus, which is also indisputably good.

In honor of keeping things green, we make the hummus with peas and add in a bunch of leafy greens, your pick of kale, spinach, or chard). Make the spread the night before and stash in the fridge. When you’re ready to toast, prep your bread, add the avocado-pea hummus, and top the finished toasts with arugula, bell pepper, and onion. Enjoy your healthy, delicious breakfast.
