DIY brunch: sourdough with hummus, roasted tomatoes & guac


God, I miss brunch. I miss it so much that I’ve started making my own versions of my favourite restaurant brunches, starting with this amazing hummus on sourdough I had earlier this year in the wonderful Moksha in Brighton. You can read my original review of it here to see how the version looked!


The dish I’m recreating is from their plant-based menu, and it consists of houmous on sourdough, topped with tomato & avocado salsa and cherry vine-ripened tomatoes. Yum!



Whilst I’m in no way saying that my attempt at this dish was as good as the original version, I was pretty pleased with the outcome! It was quite easy to make, too – the roasted cherry tomatoes felt so nice and luxurious but were actually so simple and easy to prepare.


Here are the ingredients & instructions:


  1. Sourdough bread (toast in a toaster – I tried being fancy and toasting it in the oven under a grill but it took forever… Good old toaster will do just fine!)
  2. Cherry tomatoes on the vine – put these on a baking tray with a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper on top and roast in the oven until the skin of  the tomatoes goes a bit charred looking.
  3. Hummus – I didn’t make my own but there are loads of recipes online if you want to do so! But you can find many yummy ready-made ones from supermarkets – I especially like the ones where you can see a drizzle of oil on the top… Yum!
  4. Avocado-tomato salsa – I just mixed a ripe avocado, finely chopped fresh tomatoes, chilli flakes, a small clove of garlic and a splash of lemon juice and mashed them together with a fork. I know salsa is supposed to have onion in it, but I don’t particularly care for onions, so whenever I make my own I leave it out. I know it’s a  bit of a sacrilege, but here we go… 


And there we go – so simple! After you’ve done all the ingredients separately, just pile them on top of the toasted sourdough and ENJOY! I felt so fancy eating this – almost like I was back in a restaurant!
