A Big List of Things You Could Be Putting on Toast, Crackers, or Rice Cakes

No need to get stuck in an almond butter & banana rut. Here are some nutritious, flavor-packed spreads, slathers, and toppings for anything flat and relatively crispy. Or, broadly speaking, toast ideas. Perfect for breakfast, light lunches, mid-day snacks. This list focuses primarily on the savory front.

1. Lentils folded into Yogurt, Spinach, and Basil - (101 Cookbooks) This was fantastically popular on Pinterest when I originally posted it (a bit of a surprise to me!). My advice? Make a double batch of the lentil topping. It features loads of spinach, a bit of garlic, and basil bound with greek yogurt. I love it on toasted walnut bread, but friends who can't handle gluten or wheat enjoy it wrapped in sturdy lettuce. Get the recipe here.

5. Kale Chip Avocado Toast - No recipe to link to, but I make this as a morning snack all the time. Smash some avocado on a piece of toasted whole-grain bread, and sprinkle generously with nutritional yeast and crushed kale chips. Finish of with a few hemp seeds, and a kiss of salt. I like post some of these little non-recipes on my Instagram.

7. Beet Caviar - (101 Cookbooks) - A favorite. Track down the best, darkest rye bread you can find, and make this beet spread. The sweet earthiness of roasted beets is accented with toasted walnuts, chives, dates, a bit of booziness, and a swirl of creme fraiche. Look at the color! Get the recipe here.
