Protein Bread! Who can’t get enough? The taste can’t be topped. Unless you’re talking about spreading something on top of it. In which case, go for a big dollop of our lovely pink beetroot hummus! Whether you take your bread vegan or non-vegan, both versions are jam-packed with protein. foodspring’s Vegan Protein Bread gets its protein from pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.

Preparation

  • Drain the chickpeas, rinse with water and let them drip dry for a few moments.
  • Use a stick blender, blender, or food processor to blend together the chickpeas and the rest of the ingredients. Mix until creamy.
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of beetroot hummus on each slice of bread. Store the remaining hummus in the fridge.
  • Top with sprouts, whole chickpeas, sesame seeds, or sea salt as desired.
  • Enjoy!
